Mid-Sussex League Division 1 2013-14: Horsham 1 – Worthing 2

Not long after taking on the Worthing first team, we were faced with their second team, this time away from home. Our first result was a rather lackluster draw between Don Banks and myself, where I equalised easily enough, but all life soon went out of the position and we agreed a draw. We then went ahead with two wins, the first a crush by Mike Forster, the second a rather scrappier affair involving Peter Harbott. On the top two boards, Gavin Lock won a pawn, but was unable in the end to push home his advantage, while Anthony Higgs was under pressure for a while, but managed to slip out. The final result was therefore 3.5-1.5 in our favour.

I give my game below with some brief notes.
