KIMURA made a Koshikakegin form with 13...S-5d , and advanced the 6th file Pawn with 15...P-6e to preparing a Bishop drop on 6d or 7c .

HABU pushed the 5th file Pawn with 16.P-5f . This move seems very strange , because by this move , Gote's Bishop drop on 3i might be a very effective move , after P-8e . Both players made their each King safty . They dropped their own Bishop on 7c & 3g . HABU exchanged the Silvers and Bishops .
