  1. Bou Gin
  2. Hayakuri Gin
  3. Koshikake Gin
  4. Migi Gyoku
First 3 tactics are featured by the right Silver's advancing pathway .
In "Bou Gin" , player's right Silver run from 3i through 3h--> 2g--> 2f -->1e , and start attacking with P-2d .
In "Hayakuri Gin" , player's Silver run from 3i through 3h-->3g-->4f , and start attacing with P-3e .
In "Koshikake Gin" , player's Silver run from 3i through 3h-->4g-->5f , and start attacking with P-4e .
