NOZUKI selected Aigakari as the opening of this game , and HATAKEYAMA accepted it . After the exchange of the 2nd file Pawns , NOZUKI's Rook backed to 2h square ; Hiki Hisha position .

HATAKEYAMA also exchanged his Rook Pawn , and NOZUKI advanced his right Silver . NOZUKI's strategy is Hiki Hisha Bougin . NOZUKI's 3f-Silver was threatening the almost left half of HATAKEYAMA's camp and disturbing the development of the camp . But in the same time , the Silver was disturbing NOZUKI's own 3rd file Pawn advance .

Just after HATAKEYAMA's 18...P-7d , NOZUKI advanced his 3f-Silver with 19.S-2e .

After sacrificing the 7th file Pawn with 19...P-7e , HATAKEYAMA exchanged his threatened Bishop to escape from NOZUKI's 2e-Silver . HATAKEYAMA advanced the 5th file Pawn and sacrificed it with 22...P-5f to open the diagonal line . After advancing the 3rd file Pawn with 23...P-3e , HATAKEYAMA dropped a Bishop on 3i to make a promoted Bishop by using this diagonal line from 3i to 8d .

NOZUKI also dropped a Bishop with 27.B*5f and tried to break HATAKEYAMA's camp . But NOZUKI's 28.P*2d was a careless move . He should move simply 28.S-3d without dropping a Pawn . HATAKEYAMA's 29...P-2e was a good move . Then NOZUKI's camp became difficult to defend .
