ABE selected Haya ISHIDA opening with 2.P-7e , YAGURA replied with 2...P-1d . This line include some very rough game variations . If Sente dislike such lines , he should closed the Bishop with P-6f .

How did ABE reply ?
ABE also dropped a Bishop on 7f . This Bishop protcted 6g-Pawn and in the same time aimed at Gote's 4c-Pawn . If YAGURA protected 4c-Pawn with K-4b or G-3b , ABE would also protect 2g-Pawn with S-3h or another move . Then YAGURA captured 2g-Pawn and promoted his Bishop without protecting his 4c-Pawn . And ABE also captured 4c-Pawn and promoted his Bishop .
