SUZUKI choiced "Gokigen Nakabisha" in this game . But in this game , SUZUKI played as Sente , but "Gokigen Nakabisha" is mainly Gote's strategy . Then SUZUKI pushed P-1f in early stage of the game and he could advance the opening "Gokigen Nakabisha". In more correctly saying , I should call it reversed "Gokigen Nakabisha" with P-1f .

HORIGUCHI choiced "Go-Hachi Kin kyusen" ; 5...G6a-5b variation . Since SUZUKI dislike this variation , one of the most rough variation in "Gokigen Nakabisha" , he made the game more quiet one by 6.K-4h . SUZUKI completed "Mino gakoi" .

18.P-8f S-6e
19.Sx6e Px6e
20.B*4f P-6f

SUZUKI turned his Rook to 8h; "Mukai Bisha" and advancing his attacking formation , and HORIGUCHI started making "Ibisha Anaguma" . SUZUKI started attacking with Nx8e , before HORIGUCHI's "Ibisha Anaguma" became very solid .

HORIGUCHI's reply had effective counter attack . If SUZUKI captured 21.Px6f HORIGUCHI perhaps thought the line 21...S*6g , 22.Gx6g B*7h .
