Horsham Club Quickplay Knockout 2016-17: Mansson – Higgs

Last Tuesday I won the final of the Quickplay Knockout against Anthony Higgs. The first game was a draw after we reached an interesting but balanced rook and pawn endgame. The second was a win after another endgame, albeit one in which I was better.

I give the games below with some notes.
