If you're one of the hundreds of thousands of chess24 members using the site for free, now's a prime chance to take another look at our Premium Membership... and bring a friend.
Now through June 30th, Premium Members who refer a friend earn two free months, and your friend does too! Of course this deal applies to existing Premium Members as well.
Read on to see what you may have missed lately, from our new database features to live shows!
Here's how you can earn two free months:
Your free months will soon be added to your membership term!
You probably know about our expansive Video Series and eBooks, featuring instructional interactive lessons from top players and trainers. Those, and unlimited access to the Tactics Trainer, are two of the most popular reasons to upgrade to Premium. Here, though, are a few of the lesser known benefits:
You've probably seen our newest major new destination on chess24, the Database & Analysis and Coaching page. If you haven't, stop reading now and take a look... it's OK, we'll wait!
It’s simple but powerful. Set up any position or import a game and then analyse to your heart’s content. You have the same computer analysis tools as in live tournaments, plus annotation features. When you’re finished, you can save your analysis to come back to later.
The database has been significantly improved, and is now incredibly fast, with the ability to search for players and filter the 6 million plus games to find exactly what you need. The results are tied to the position on your board and updated nearly instantaneously with each move.
If you want to bring in a friend or student / coach to share your analysis, just hit the broadcast button in the left toolbar:
Select a few options, such as whether or not your friend can also move the pieces or see the engine evaluation, and you can be off and running in a shared study session or even a group lesson.
Only the side initiating the session needs to be Premium to use this cool feature.
We're continuing to improve this tool, so please send us your feedback on what you like, dislike, and what you want to see next.
We're looking to make this the simplest and best tool of its kind on the web!
Did you know you can even use it to take a closer look at tactics puzzles you encounter in our Tactics Trainer?
We've been growing our stable of Live Shows over the past year, and even though most are free, it pays to be Premium. You get to play with titled players, including the likes of Peter Svidler and Jan Gustafsson in live banter blitz sessions, or train tactics and strategy with IMs Anna Rudolf and Sopiko Guramishvili.
Find the chess set that feels best to you, as you play, watch and learn on chess24:
Premium Members also have access to small details that make your chess24 experience more comfortable and enjoyable:
We left this point to the end, although it may well be the most important. The support of our Premium Members is what makes all the news articles, live tournament broadcasts, shows and special events — and everything else about the platform — possible. We've been building a platform for you and with your feedback and participation for over two years now, as we aspire to make chess24 the only site you'll ever need.
For about 25 cents a day you can have fun and help us continue developing new technology and features to push the boundaries of online chess.
Still not convinced? Get more bang for your buck by referring a friend — remember you can both get two free bonus months — but only before July 1st!
Thank you so much for thinking of us and remember that if you have any questions, we'll be happy to help you through the comments or chess24.com/support.
