Grandmasters Jan Gustafsson and Pepe Cuenca will play chess24 Premium members non-stop for 12 hours this Thursday, 18th October. If you’ve ever wanted to play a chess grandmaster – and especially a grandmaster wearing a wig or hat while holding a cucumber – now’s your chance! They’ll play from 8am in the morning to 8pm at night, so if the tension of the European Club Cup final round becomes too much you know where to turn.

The latest Banterthon begins at 8am CEST on Thursday 18th
October and ends at 8pm. Anyone can watch, but if you Go Premium you can play against our heroes! Of course you also
