Jacques Brunion

The fourth of the musketeers, the oldest of them, has always been the main support for his comrades. Modest, restrained, he in a single game could not reveal all that he was capable of. And this is a pity, because his varied and attractive game posed serious problems for an opponent of the highest class.
