KIMURA led the opening to "Ittezon Kakukawari", but he selected rare move ; 3...S-4b. At this move , many players select Bx8h+ or P-8d . The line of this game will be same diagram of a variation of natural "Ittezon Kakukawari". If HABU didn't exchange Bishops ; 4.Bx2b+ , KIMURA perhaps move 4...S-3c and the opening transposition to "Yagura" opening .
