(diagram 1)

HABU moved 1.P-2f , he seemed to want "Aigakari" opening , and YAMASAKI replied 1...P-8d . HABU's 2nd move was 2.P-7f , he opened his Bishop's pathway , and the opening became the beginning of "Kakukawari" opening .

YAMASAKI accepted "Kakukawari" opening by G-3b and P-8e before P-3d . If he wants to decline "Kakukawari" , he moves P-3d before , and opening transpositions to "Yokofutori" , "Ittezon Kakukawari " or other minor variations .

Both players advanced their camp , but YAMASAKI had not moved his King .

26. R-3h!

YAMASAKI backed his Rook at 8a . To back the Rook and use it at first rank is called "Chikatetsu Bisha"; meaning subway Rook . YAMASAKI's King moved to the right side of his camp ; "Migi Gyoku".

YAMASAKI moved and exchange 3rd file Pawn by his Rook , but this line is not a good idea . HABU's 26.R-3h is good move .
