Intuition Navigates Chaos: Turbo – Chess Strategy with GM Damian Lemos
Some months ago, GM Damian launched his Intuition Navigates Chaos course The Club Player’s Manifesto 2k, a chess strategy course designed to help you improve your strategic play.
It was also meant to elevate your chess understanding and thought processes to master level, covering everything from sacrifices and forcing moves to prophylaxis and pattern recognition.
Hopefully, you’ve taken that course and are already reaping the benefits… now GM Lemos took things a step further with his new INC – Turbo series.
This is all about turbocharging your improvement with super-rich examples that will light up the shadowy areas of your chess understanding.
It’s high-level stuff but GM Lemos has broken it down so anyone who’s reasonably smart will get it… and we know you’re smart or you wouldn’t have read this far.
The first course goes deep on Evaluation and Strategy and it’s 4 hours long.

Is this course for me?
Remember. ‘Strategy’ doesn’t mean ‘positional’.
While there are some fascinating positional games in this course, you also get to work on your attacking strategies and sharpen your ability to evaluate double-edged positions.
GM Lemos has selected 7 games, each one packed with valuable learning points – and you probably haven’t seen any of them before.
While you can always learn new things from games, GM Damian Lemos wanted to give you the absolute biggest power-up possible.
A few of the things we cover…
- Dominant attacking play. If you want attacks that don’t run out of steam, you need to be able to think in schemes… accurately assessing the time and force you and your opponent can bring to the attack zone. GM Lemos teaches you how to create sustained, hard-hitting attacks that make your opponent implode.
- Turning the screw. So you’ve got control of a file or secured the bishop pair. How do you increase your advantage instead of letting your opponent back into the game? Take a look at this position (diagram). Both of White’s pieces are better than Black’s counterparts… but what next? If you would play Rxb6 in a game then you will learn a HUGE amount from this course!
- Judging dynamic chances. GM Lemos explains how to make positional sacrifices that work for you. You need to combine evaluation – what plusses do you get? – and strategy – how can you make those advantages pay? The tips GM Lemos gives you will remove the guesswork.
