Attacking Chess

Chess position

In Horsham 2 v Crowborough on Tuesday, Morgan Blake was facing David Fryer and Black had just taken his Rook.

No doubt David expected simply BxB but Morgan demonstrated fantastic attacking style in this position and shortly won...solution in the comments

Spotted in AAH

Bridge club with Roger Waddingham

I was leafing through AAH this Saturday and saw a picture with Horsham Bridge Society. I seemed to remember that Peter Harbott played there .. but it seems that Rogar Waddingham does too!

Congratulations to the Bridge club on their anniversary.

Maya reaches new heights!

Horsham's junior club champion Maya McMahon was joint winner of the Sussex U11 girls title at the weekend with 4.5/5, including a final round win against the 4/4 leader...

Top Performers!

Top Performers

All four teams have played three matches and there has been a MSL Knockout match as well. As we have had the last matches before Christmas I thought you might be interested in the players with the top performance in all matches. I have listed all players with over 50%.

Horsham Knocked Out!

Our MSL Knock-Out team played its first match of the season last night (5th December). Our opponents were Lewes 1 - they've entered 2 KO teams. Being their first team, it was anticipated that they might come in strength, although this is always a bit of guesswork until you see who turns up on the night. We therefore countered with a team based more on strength than possible handicap advantage. In the event, Lewes were missing some of their top players and were significantly the weaker side on paper.

Double Match

It's Tuesday

Another packed week with a double match and another six games going on.

I was a bit preoccupied with my own match so not sure I saw all the matches. Alex Taylor played Mike Forster in the quickplay and Mike won the day and is now due to play Paul Taylor. Also in the quickplay Richard Barrowclough managed to beat Mick Harris in a typically good humoured game to reach the final of the Plate. Don't forget that the Quickplay is scheduled for 19 December.

Late Result

Horsham 4 result

Horsham 4 played against an entire team of Juniors at Worthing last Monday...

Tough battle in first rapidplay match of the season

Horsham hosted Crowborough as we kicked off this season's matches in the Mid Sussex League Rapidplay division...

Lucky 13

It's Tuesday

Week 13 of our 42 week season tonight - week 13 was lucky for some.

It was great to see the rapid play team playing Crowborough . Anthony will provide a full report so I won't steal his thunder but there was some great chess being played on the green baize.
