Horsham 2 set to win Division 2 !


The winner of Horsham 2 v Eastbourne 1 was always going to decide the winner of the second division and promotion to division 1 .Phil played a great game to beat Rasa and Ian played accurately to convert a slightly better position. We have 2.5 points with just Peter's game outstanding and are expecting to be claiming a win.

So barring an embaraassing disaster in the final game against lowly opposition we look well set to collect some silverware.

Horsham 2 Underpromote to Overwhelming victory!


Horsham 2 managed an impressive 4.5 - 0.5 victory against Worthing 3 last night. We completely outgraded the opposition and took good advantage with some great results.

On board 3 (Comley - Wallis) Black is threatening to mate White so I underpromoted to a knight with check! After the game Chris Heath recommended Rh5 which was much better...but the computer spotted another tactic...see if you can spot it - clue: turns out I underpromoted the wrong pawn!
