Mid-Sussex League Division 1 2016-17: Horsham 1 – Eastbourne 1

Horsham 1 scored a decisive win 4.5-0.5 over Eastbourne 1 towards the end of November. I was Black against Adrian Pickersgill. Although I was in trouble out of the opening after a poor 15th move, my opponent soon allowed play to transfer into a strange ending, where his two (!) protected passed pawns were surprisingly ineffective. Towards the time control I was able to force a decisive breakthrough.

I give the game below with some notes.
