    Recently sold some investments and wondering where to re invest.
    Thinking of buying a big old property which is up for sale in the village and converting it into a chess school.It will be called The Castlery and specialise in teaching players about castling on the queens side.Anyone applying and wanting to castle short will be ignored.Magnus will be invited & vishy who has a lot of time on his hands.Further schools may be opened,The Fianchetory for fianchetto on the Q side only.Anyone on this site who tells his opponent to get thee self to the gravediggers Castlery will get free stays & the chance to play Magnus etc.Also pawn promoting will be taught but not promoting to Q.Thoughts please

    Convert it into a giant rook and call it Bobby Fischer's dream house.

    That would be nice but where I live I would not get planning permission.

    Thanks for your interest Ponderable. At the moment just trying to judge support.
    Hoping our resident huckster green pawn might give an opinion.
    Also proper knob and swiss gambit both of whom I respect.

    I suggest checked tablecloths in the dining room.
    And don't buy in haste.
    Check all checks!

    Well fellow Schmucks.
    I have had a bid accepted but due to the total apathy
    on this site I will put it into the hands of a local letting agent.
    We sell ourselves short & get nothing.
    OK maybe I was a bit specialised but if I cant raise any
    interest on here so be it.More money for me but it was never about the money.Never even got a reply from our resident journey man greenpawn.

    Smoking rooms would have been provided.

    Tal was a prodigious smoker.
