9. P-7e B*3c






KUBOTA pushed P-1f in very early stage of opening . This move mainly seen in "Furibisha" players' games and means to make opponent show the attitude whether he selects "Ibisha" or "Furibisha" . In addition to it , P-1f has some more meaning in various situation .
  1. making "Mino gakoi" safety
  2. preparing attacking in 1st file , especially in the game of "FUJII system"
  3. to delay fixing the formation once
  4. to select Gote's opening

KITAHAMA replied it by pushing his Rook Pawn and shown his attitude to select "Ibisha" .
KUBOTA moved B-7g , this form is almost same as "Yonteme San-San Kaku senpou" . If call this form more accurately "reversed Yonteme San-San Kaku senpou with P-1f " . "Yonteme San-San Kaku senpou" is KUBOTA's favorite opening .

In this game he tried to make "TATEISHI ryu Shiken Bisha" formation , but KITAHAMA avoid it by dropping his Bishop at 3c .

Since KUBOTA had a difficulty to make "TATEISHI ryu Shiken Bisha" , so he advanced his left Gold to upper rank . This tactics means that KUBOTA's Kakoi become weaker in same time . KUBOTA opened a battle by capturing a Pawn by the left Knight , KITAHAMA backed the Silver from 4d to 5c and opened his Bishop line in same time .
