SUZUKI is a famous "Furibisha" player . His move 2.P-1f perhaps means , if WATANBE reply 2...P-8d , SUZUKI will move P-5f and advanced the opening to "Gokigen Nakabisha" . ( We can call it Sente-Gote reversed "Gokigen Nakabisha" with P-1f.)

WATANABE's move 2...K-4b means to decline "Gokigen Nakabisha" . If SUZUKI still move P-5f , WATANABE will advanced the opening like following ; 3.P-5f Bx8h+ 4. Sx8h B'5g . Then Sente can't prevent Gote's promoting Bishop .

SUZUKI selected "Shiken Bisha" without closing Bishop's line by P-6f ; "FUJII's open Shikenbisha" .

After King's move , SUZUKI moved B-7g , WATANABE immedialy exchanged the Bishop . If WATANABE didn't exchange , SUZUKI will move S-7h , and SUZUKI can easily advanced his camp and in the same time WATANABE have some difficulty to make "Ibisha Anaguma" without losing advantage .

After Bishop exchange SUZUKI finished making "Mino gakoi", and WATANABE started making "Ibisha Anaguma" . While WATANABE was making "Ibisha Anaguma" , SUZUKI advanced the left side of his camp "TATEISHI ryu" formation . Then SUZUKI got some advantage in this game , WATANABE has some difficulty to move his pieces .
