County Match (Open) 2023-24: Sussex – Kent

Last Saturday, Sussex were home against Kent in the SCCU County Championship. Despite a valiant effort, Sussex went down 7.5-8.5. My game was a particular source of frustration, as I blundered a rook with both players very short of time to lose a winning position.

I was White on board ten against John Sugden. The game started well for me, as I established a very promising position against his Modern Benoni, sacrificing a pawn to established a powerful advanced d-pawn. The complexity of the position resulted in both players running very short of time and committing a series of errors, culminating in the aforementioned catastrophic mistake by me.

I give the game below with some notes.
