Horsham Club Quickplay Knockout 2011-12: Mansson – Harbott

Last night I won my semi-final match against Peter Harbott in the club quickplay knockout. It was contested, as usual, over two 10-minutes games, with sudden death if the match is tied 1-1. In the first game, I quickly built up pressure on his position, with an unusual line against the Petroff Defence. A couple of blunders when under pressure sealed his fate. In the second game, an unsound piece sacrifice in the opening rebounded for Peter, and I wrapped up the win easily enough.

I give the games below with some notes.
