  kevin86: <Hare Tonic> was a title of a Bugs Bunny cartoon. I think it was a take off on Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

The game had a large amount of pins-each one a weakness on white's game.

  Chessmensch: Mr. Dillon played a solid game. I wonder if Chester and Miss Kitty helped him. Whoops, I'm showing my age.

  Jim Bartle: That's right. Younger people would have said "Fester and Miss Kitty."
Jul-03-07  rozumim: But they too would have missed the character's actual name: "Festus."
Jul-03-07  gnixon: I hate playing against the French. It baffles me. Black's pieces always seem to coordinate for central control while white's pieces just bump into each other with no pawn support.

  Jim Bartle: Oops. That's right! It was Festus. Fester was a member of the Addams Family?
