At the end of September, Sussex played Surrey in the first county match of the season. Unfortunately, Sussex lost 7-9 against the higher-rated team. I did, however, have the satisfaction of winning an interesting game.
I emerged from the opening with the more promising position. Presented with the opportunity to sharpen the position I did so. Both players managed to navigate the complications for a while, until eventually my opponent cracked under the pressure and made a decisive error. I then managed to finish effectively.
I give the game below with some notes.
