Mid-Sussex League Division 1 2012-13: Horsham 1 – Brighton 1

On Tuesday I played for Horsham 1 against Brighton 1 in the Mid-Sussex League. The team suffered a clear loss, and my individual game was frustrating, as I managed to lose on time in what looks like a level position.

Following twenty or so moves of standard King’s Indian play, I seized the chance to sacrifice a piece for two pawns, leaving my opponent with a difficult defence. A further sacrifice of a piece for another two pawns increased the pressure (although there was an effective quieter alternative too), but a mistake a few moves later gave my opponent the better of it. Fortunately, he then played a couple of mediocre moves, letting me back in the game, but I had run very short of time, and contrived to exceed the time limit just before I had played my 42 move. The position after the obvious capture on f6 would have been balanced.

I give the game below with some notes.
