Finally, Horsham Chess Club has restarted and started playing its internal competitions! Last night I played my first round match in the quickplay knockout against Marian Trofin. I was repaired following my original opponent’s withdrawal, and ended up with the toughest (according to Anthony at least) of the potential opposition.
The match was tense and was decided in the second of the two games. In the first, I decided to bail out with a draw as I was running short of time. In the second, I finally managed to break through on the queenside.
I give the games below with some notes.
