Another Olympiad Premium Promotion!

The Baku Chess Olympiad is now entering the home straight! Seven rounds have gone by and it's beginning to become clear not only who the potential winners are but which players are in form.

With four rounds of the Olympiad remaining we're launching yet another Premium promotion that enables new Premium Members to win a free extension to their membership. The aim is to pick out an Olympiad player who you think will go on a winning streak in the final rounds.

Who can take part?

Anyone who from 9-13 September 2016 takes out a one, two or three-year Premium Membership. Please note that those with yearly or monthly Premium Memberships taken out before this time cannot participate in this promotion.

What do I need to do to take part?

Take out a new Premium Membership for one, two or three years. Then give us your player pick either using the contact form or by sending an email to our customer services at

How will the Premium bonus be determined?

Will Nepo's winning streak continue?

For each win your player scores in rounds 8-11 we'll extend your Premium Membership by a free month. We'll only take into account rounds after you give us your tip and purchase a Premium Membership. You can't, therefore, wait until the final day and pick a player who you already know was successful. What you can do, though, is pick more than one player - if you go for a longer membership:

  • 1-year membership: 1 player
  • 2-year membership: 2 players
  • 3-year membership: 3 players

In plain English?

For instance, you take out a 2-year Premium Membership on the morning of 10 September - before Round 8 - and tell us your pick of Ian Nepomniachtchi and Magnus Carlsen. If Ian scores 4 wins and Magnus scores 2 in the remaining rounds, then your Premium Membership will be extended by a bonus 6 months.

Your chance of winning is of course higher the earlier you go Premium and send in your picks, so don't delay!

If you still have any questions please contact our Customer Support or leave a comment here. Good luck!
