ITODANI selected "Kakukawari" opening in this game , but NAKAGAWA declined Bishop exchange by 5...P-4d and the opening advanced unorthodox one . ITODANI exchanged his Rook Pawn and he advanced the camp naturaly . In the other hand , NAKAGAWA's camp seemed odd . How NAKAGAWA would advance his camp ?

The answer of the question , NAGAWA shown by 16...K-6b ; "Migi Gyoku" .

"Migi Gyoku" has deffensive and counter attack strategy in "Ai Ibisha" . The name "Migi Gyoku" means sitting the King right side . In this strategy , the player's King escapes from opponent's attack to left side of the camp , and counterattacks to opponent's King directly in front . The strategy has some weak points in the same time . One of the most important things is that the player's King isn't so safty .

ITODANI set his Bishop and Rook to prepare attacking , and NAKAGAWA started attacking before ITODANI's attack .
