With more than 8,000,000,000 games played on Chess.com to date, there are doubtless many brilliant but little-known masterpieces hidden in our database. To unearth those treasures, we're happy to announce the Chess.com Immortal Game Contest!

Have you played a game on Chess.com that deserves to be immortalized? Share it with us for a chance at a piece of the $2,000 prize fund and to have your game archived in our "Chess.com Immortal Games" collection in Library.

Haven't played your immortal game yet but have a favorite played by someone else? Share the game with us, and if it's selected to win a prize, you will win a  membership!
