HABU started attacking in 3rd file with P-3e . IIJIMA advanced his Rook Pawn with P-8e and counterattacked in 8th file with P-8f . When HABU moved 16.S-4f , you may think IIJIMA could promote his Rook with 16...R-8g+ . But HABU had a counter 17.R-8h +Rx8h 18. Sx8h . After Sx8h , HABU can drop his Rook on 8b . Then IIJIMA dropped a Pawn with P*8f . Both players dropped their Bishops and after some moves HABU attacked in right wing and tried to continue attacking with Rook sacrifice .
