Club Player’s Manifesto 2K – GM Damian Lemos
Are you ready to finally smash that 2000 FIDE barrier?
After “how can I get better at chess”, the next most-heard question is “what do I have to do to hit 2000 FIDE?”
Only 5% of serious (rated) chess players ever reach the 2k level. It’s a major accomplishment, one that places you in the most-respected group of players.
Not everyone has the huge amount of spare time required to hit IM or GM-level, but GM Lemos firmly believes ANY reasonably smart, ambitious person can reach 2000 FIDE… with the right training.
The 12-hour Club Player’s Manifesto 2k is all about developing the skills and understanding needed to find strong moves in any position.

How is this course going to help me?
With GM Lemos, you’ll analyze 50 of the most instructive games from grandmaster chess… each one teaching something new in 1 of 7 categories:
- Thought Process & Calculation
Thinking outside of the box: take a look at this position. White is loading up against e6 (and f7), ready to play f5 and Ne4-d6. What do you do? Play …Re8 and …Nf8 to protect e6? Seems sensible… what about playing …f6? Blunder? No – it leads to a crushing attack for Black!
- Evaluation & Strategy
- Forcing Moves
Making moves work. Forcing moves, the initiative, attacking play, sacrifices… we want to force issues, to take control… but know you can’t just play something aggressive and ‘hope’ it works. We examine WHY these moves work, using elite level examples
- Sacrifices & Navigating Chaos
GM Lemos always teaches “Trust your position. Believe there is a resource.” He’ll also give you step-by-step processes to find winning/saving moves.
- Pattern Recognition Creates Intuition
Going over several exercises with the same pattern will help you develop your intuition whenever the pattern is present in your tournament play.
- Prophylaxis = Control
- The Squeeze – Converting Advantages
What makes this course different from all the rest?
The whole aim of the course is to not only to massively upgrade your ability to find the right moves but to make this decision-making second-nature… even in complex positions. Intuition navigates chaos.
That’s when your whole game really changes and you make a quantum leap in your play.
“Don’t worry about your rating. Focus on learning and your rating will take care of itself.” – Dan Heisman.
The new Club Player’s Manifesto 2k is complete training for the serious chess fan. Study it and you WILL hit 2000 FIDE… and probably go far beyond it too.
But it won’t happen overnight.
You will have good results and feel unbeatable… only to lose 3 in a row and think you’re going nowhere.
It takes time to integrate new knowledge… but not as much as you might think.
In fact, a 1400 player could reach 2000 FIDE by the end of the year – IF they commit to the material fully.
Are you ready to make this happen?
This 12-hour course doesn’t teach openings… it doesn’t teach endgames… take these lessons with GM Lemos and you will be learning chess.
How to think in different situations, how to balance tactics and strategy, advanced calculation, maneuvering, prophylaxis – everything you always wanted to know but was too afraid to ask.
You might never be a GM, it requires hours of daily study plus success in international tournaments. But you CAN go beyond 2000 FIDE – and this course will get you there fast.
