  An Englishman: Good Evening: A sparkling attack from the little known 19th Century player Paul Journoud, our Player of the Day for 18 Jan 2015. I liked 17.b3, an insouciant and nasty little move leaving the Ra1 en rise so he can threaten to put the Bishop en prise with 18.Bb2.

  TheFocus: After 22...fxe6, Journoud announced mate in three.
Nov-06-17  RKnight: <An Englishman> I often find your comments useful, but not this time. "A sparkling attack" and "17 b3 an insouciant and nasty little move" seem like hyperbole. The simple 17...O-O puts a quick end to Journoud's adventures, e.g. 18 Qxe7 Rfe8, or 18 Bb2 Qxb2 19 Qxe7 Bc3, or 18 Rb1 Rae8 19 Bb2 Qf5, etc. In all cases back comes out safe and at least a pawn up.
