After capturing the 3d-Pawn , MORIUCHI's Silver backed to 3g . SATO moved up 3b-Gold with 38...G-3c . This move advanced the defence line and gave a pressure to the opponent , but the King became less safty in the same time .

MORIUCHI's King escaped from the battle field with 14.K-7h , and SATO advanced the 3d-Silver with 14...S-3e . MORIUCHI pushed the 5th file Pawn and moved up the right Gold with G-5h . These moves made a defect in MORIUCHI's camp . The defect is an opponent's Bishop drop on 3i .

After sacrificin the 7th file Pawn with 17...P-7e , SATO dropped a Bishop with 18...B*3i forking 2h-Rook and 7e-Pawn . MORIUCHI's Rook didn't escape but MORIUCHI pushed the 5th file pawn with 19.P-5e .

MORIUCHI advanced the 7th file Pawn with P-7d aiming at 8b-Rook's temple . Replying SATO's Pawn drop with 20...P*3f , MORIUCHI's Rook escaped from 3i-Bishop's power and threatened the 3i-Bishop with 21.R-3h . SATO's Bishop escaped and promoted with 21...B-7e+ .

After some moves , MORIUCHI dropped a Pawn with 23.P*5b . Because this move is a check , SATO must reply it . But SATO's every reply will give MORIUCHI a next attack . If SATO captured the Pawn with Rx5b , MORIUCHI could drop a Bishop with B*6c . In the game , SATO captured the Pawn with 23...Gx5b , and MORIUCHI dropped a Bishop with 24.B*2b and promoted the Bishop capturing 1a-Lance .

After some moves , SATO's King was slowly attacked from both side , and MORIUCHI seemed to get an advantage .
