KUBO selected "Haya ISHIDA " as the opening of this game with P-7e & R-7h . SATO accepted it . After moving K-4h , KUBO tried to exchange 7th file pawn with P-7d , but most players think this move is bad move . Perhaps SATO also thought it and he replied with G-7b , the best reply that OHYAMA 15th life time Meijin played . Then KUBO shown the new move R-7e , no professional palyers had ever played .

KUBO's R-7e perhaps supprised SATO . SATO naturaly moved his King with K-4b . KUBO started attacking in 7th file with Px7c+ and after exchanging the Bishops he joined his left Knight in attacking . SATO also tried to attack with dropping the Bishop at 5d . And both players roughly attacked each other .
