  al wazir: What on Earth did white have in mind when he played 33. Rxf7 ? It offers neither a defense nor a serious counterthreat.

Maybe it was just a way of throwing in the towel.

He seems to be dead lost even before this move anyway.

<Maybe it was just a way of throwing in the towel.>

I think so.

  eternaloptimist: This is an interesting game & IM Garbett did a good job of attacking Foo. I liked this cartoon & used to watch it a lot when I was a kid/teenager. 1 thing that stood out about it is at the end of the cartoons, Hong Kong Phooey would think that he solved the crimes & he would get credit for doing that. Although it was actually the cat who solved them & he would sigh after HKP got the credit for solving them. Also I used to b a Christian foreign missionary in China & I spent ~3/4 of the time over there in Hong Kong. I really enjoyed it over there!
