To further elaborate on Astra's advice.
Grab the chain and hold it so your thumbs are pointing toward each other (palm downs). Position the chain so your thumbs are pressing laterally on either side of the stiff link. Then wrap your other fingers around the chain and press your thumbs against the stiff link and then pull the chain in the other direction and do this back and forth numerous times.
The idea is to over stress the stiff link to develop a bit more side to side play in the link, thus loosening it up.
Hope this makes sense.
