I wish you luck in Tenerife but I don't know enough about your other ideas to offer any views.

Re: World Chess Junior Squad launches £500 Tournament

Thanks Charlie. I looked at this a while back as an idea for my youngest boy and your money is way out. Maybe 200k might be possible for a decent place but don't let me discourage you. If you are going to buy something cheap, you can do but don't think that you will be DJing all over the island.

Re: World Chess Junior Squad launches £500 Tournament

So, Charlie, are you investing 30k in this Tenerife project so it's an equal partnership or are you expecting someone else to be the money man.

Re: 2020 Lindores Abbey Rapid Challenge

Presumably So just agreed a draw in Round 3 with a view to regrouping for the next mini-match. Or, after the horrible loss in the second game, he couldn't cope with possibly losing in the third game. Perhaps he should have tried something sharp in the third game and said to himself if I lose I lose....

Re: Chess once we restart over the board

'Invited' medics & boffins "familiar with" the wider activity under scrutiny could be a little bit biased. Also, while we're at it, some of the Austrian players in the Chessbase report, linked to above, look to be a little bit biased towards being in an at-risk category. John, I think that in your ...

Anybody got an idea where the live games are on Chess.com. I may be being stupid but I can't find them.

Re: Worrying times

you come across as an embittered person, if your posts are anything to go by. the rowson review was just plain nasty, but i guess that reflects you as a person.

Re: Announcing mate

I don't really understand your response but it hardly matters. There is nothing to be gained by arguing at this difficult time. I shall continue to read your stuff with interest as I said before.

Re: Announcing mate

Perhaps your last 7195 posts on the Forum (or, at least, a great many of them) are the reason! Don't get me wrong - you have a great deal of useful stuff to say and I read most of it with interest but your response to my attempt to be amusing just shows what a great opinion you have of yourself.
