Captured the 3d-Pawn and sacrificed a Pawn with 26.P*7d , MORIUCHI continued attacking .

If FUKAURA captured 4e-Knight with 28...Sx4e , MORIUCHI would drop a Bishop B*6c , in this line MORIUCHI's 26.P*7d worked most effectively . For this reason , FUKAURA didn't capture 4e-Knight , but attacked with 28...P-8f . MORIUCHI captured the Pawn , and FUKAURA dropped a Pawn with 29...P*8h . MORIUCHI captured the dropped 8h-Pawn with 30.Sx8h , but the move blocked the King's escape route .

FUKAURA dropped a Bishop with 30...B*4f to aim at both MORIUCHI's Rook & King . After the Rook's escape , MORIUCHI counterattacked with a Bishop dropping on 7i , forking 8b-Rook and 5c-Pawn . Sacrificing a Knight with 32...N-6e , FUKAURA protect both his Rook and 5c-Pawn with R-8c .

MORIUCHI made his Bishop promoted . Both players attacked each other with dropping a Knight aiming at a Gold .
