Just under a month ago, Horsham 1 faced Hastings 1 at home in a crucial league match. Unfortunately, Horsham were not at full strength, with two of the first choice five missing, while Hastings had their strongest team; it was therefore not surprising that Hastings won comfortably in the end.
I was up against GM Bogdan Lalic on board one, as Gavin Lock was unfortunately unavailable for this match. Unsurprisingly, especially as Bogdan was White, I lost the game. I give it below with some notes.
