    Chess Crossword winnersAdditionally, I promised I’ll providing something special to all the participants as well – all participants will get an RCA premium video of their choice for FREE! :) Thanks for participating guys, I appreciate your enthusiasm towards chess – after all, participation matters more than winning.


    Note: all the participants were contacted by our Support Team to provide the FREE premium video. If you participated in the contest but did not hear from us, please contact our Support Team here.


    Finally, it’s time to announce the solution of the crossword puzzle. :) You can download the file “Crossword Solution” (Excel file) which contains the solution for the puzzle – DOWNLOAD.

    designAre you tired of solving the whole crossword? :) As you might have noticed, there’s a lot of information and terminology related to chess. Also, we’ve been taught so many rules in chess and it’s hard to choose the best ones when you are there, playing a game, looking for the best moves when you don’t know what to do.
    confusedWouldn’t it be easier if we can apply a SINGLE rule or methodology to all positions – instead of remembering so many rules for openings, middlegame and endgame?


    That’s why you need to have a strong understanding of chess and comprehensive knowledge about it. This will “make it simple” for you – you will be able to find the best moves easily in any situation, because you UNDERSTAND the game. I recommend you to study our RCA comprehensive courses which will give you this KNOWLEDGE.

Also some of you might not be able to afford to purchase our courses.


    Therefore, I’m providing EVERYONE with a massive 30% discount on the RCA comprehensive courses (ONLY).


    Simply use the coupon “comprehensive” when making your purchase. This coupon will be valid from today until Wednesday, 14 September (inclusive). If you don’t know how to use a discount code, please see here.

    designFinally, I’d like to inform something very important and exciting – we have a new vacancy. Remote Chess Academy is growing constantly; thus, we wish to engage new people in our Team. Currently we are inviting applications for this new post – “YouTuber”.


    If you like to record videos or would like to learn how to record chess videos, then this career opportunity may be right for you.

      Hi, I haven’t received any note from the support team that I participated in the contest. I sent my answers last Sept. 1, maybe a lot of players sent correct answers before me since I am not included on the list of first 50 participants. Though I haven’t received any message from the support team recognizing my participation, I did received a message from them asking a survey.

      • CJ

        By the way, I did get all the answers correct.
