Tourneys! We Have Tourneys!

I will be moving through, after all, to the third round of the Italian Game tournament. More chances to play the Jerome Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.Bxf7+) should occur. I will share them, good, bad and ugly...

In the meantime, a 28-player Italian Game tournament has started, also at I am in one of four 7-player groups, and in my first 6 games I have black in 5 of them. Alas, the one game with the white pieces I have been unable to finagle a Jerome Gambit. (I am again exploring the opening line suggested by chessfriend Yury Bukayev.)

For the time being - until at least one game is completed - I will be Jerome-less in this tournament.
