Horsham Club Knockout 2023-24: Mansson – Taylor (Rapidplay)

My knockout match against Alex Taylor had gone to its third game and first of the rapidplay games, played at thirty minutes each with a ten second increment. We played that game last night, and finally had a decisive result, which was in my favour. This takes me through to the semi-final of the competition.

I was White and soon established a large advantage after my opponent played the opening inaccurately. In a difficult position where it was not clear what to do, my opponent played a series of weak moves, which culminated in blundering his queen. I was then able to wrap up the game pretty quickly.

I give the game below with some notes.
