Another big win for Horsham 1

This was a home match played with a full strength team against an under-strength Lewes side, who made a good fight of it but lost out in some highly tactical games.

Mike won quickly with a big attack against an exposed Black king in the centre, Dix broke through with a winning pawn sacrifice and I won a pawn and swapped down into an overwhelming endgame. James strangled White's position before winning material decisively and Lewes only avoided the whitewash when Gavin blundered into a mate in a winning (though sharp) position.
