Putting out a strong team against equally strong opposition paid dividends:
On board 4 Jim Wheeler agreed a draw in a workmanlike game.
Daniel Lowe achieved a strong win on board 5 using up far less time than any other player!
Paul Kelly professionally managed a draw on the top board some time after his opponent had declined an earlier offer.
Two games were left for adjudication: Steve Blewitt from an earlier material advantage, and perhaps in the most interesting game Laurence Butt exchanged his queen for a rook and bishop to develop attacking options.
====== Update 1 November:
Adjudication agreed: Horsham win on board 2 and a draw on board 3 resulting in an overall draw.
