Horsham 1 start with win over Horsham 2

Horsham 1 started the season with a 3-1 win over Horsham 2. Mark Broom beat Phil Stimpson and Mike Forster beat Ian Comley, while Gavin Lock drew with Anthony Higgs and James Mansson drew with Rob McDonald. The last game was an eventful encounter, where both sides had chances to gain a signficant advantage. In the final position, where the players agreed a draw, anticipating the repetition of the position, James was in fact winning, but this was very hard to see with both players very low on time; given that Rob had himself been winning earlier, this did not in the end feel an unfair outcome. More details of the encounter can be found in the report on James Mansson' chess blog.
