KUBO is a famous "Furibisha" player , especially he is very good at "Gokigen Nakabisha" as Gote . But in this game , ABE declined KUBO's "Gokigen Nakabisha" by 2.K-6h .
(If you want to know more detail , please see my other blog .)

K-6h is not always good move in case of opponent's "Ibisha" . So , KUBO pushed his Rook Pawn and shown that he might select "Ibisha" , and replying it ABE closed Bishop line;P-6f once and tried makeing the game quiet one . Finally KUBO ranged his Rook to 4b and the opening became Gote "Shiken Bisha" .

ABE reopened the Bishop line ; P-6e and this move got Pawn's good position ; Kurai in 6th file . If the game became quiet , the move P-6e will be more effective . So , KUBO had an attacking attitude without preventing opponent's Bishop dropping at 8b . Then the game beame very rough one .
