After both players opened the Bishop line , YAMAGUCHI advanced the 7th file Pawn with 2.P-7e , and she shown her attitude to select Haya ISHIDA . Replying 2.P-7e , WATANABE pushed the 5th file Pawn with 2...P-5d .

The move 2...P-5d means Gote player dislike R-7h with open Bishop line without P-6f . If Sente still move 3.R-h , please see my blog Yamajunn's Shogi opening traps ; Haya ISHIDA part 2.

After closing the Bishop line YAMAGUCHI turned her Rook to 7h . WATANABE advanced her left Silver with 3...S-4b & 4...S-5c , moved up the Bishop with 5...B-3c and she made her strategy Mukai Bisha .

YAMAGUCHI temporary made Kata mino gakoi with 8.S-3h and immediately started developing it to Yagura gakoi . WATANABE also made Hon mino gakoi 10...S-7b and her King was entering the Kakoi .

YAMAGUCHI exchanged the 7th file Pawns , before she completed Yagura gakoi . She re-opened the Bishop line by advancing the 6th file . This move disturbed a development of WATANABE's camp with P-6d , but closed a way of YAMAGUCHI's 5f-Silver and left Knight in the same time .

After some moves , WATANABE's King entered Hon mino gakoi , turned her Rook to 4b and pushed the 8th file Pawn with 21...P-8d to develop her Kakoi to Ginkanmuri . YAMAGUCHI completed Hekomi Yagura and started attacking with 24.P-6d & 25.P*6e , before WATANABE completed her Kakoi .

Because WATANABE couldn't capture the 6e-Pawn , She exchanged her 3c-Bishop and YAMAGUCHI's 7g-Knight with 25...Bx7g+ . If WATANABE captured the 6e-Pawn with 25...Px6e , the move 26.Nx6e would attack the 5c-Bishop and YAMAGUCHI's 9g-Bishop threatened the 4b-Rook .

After a Bishop and a Knight exchange , WATANABE dropped a Knight with 26...N*8e forking the 7g-Rook & the 9g-Bishop . WATANABE captured the 9g-Bishop and she recovered her material loss .

WATANABE captured the 6e-Pawn with 28...Px6e , and replying YAMAGUCHI's 29.Sx6e , WATANABE dropped a Pawn with 29...P*6d to defend . YAMAGUCHI didn't back the 6e-Silver , but dropped a Pawn with 30.P*7d to continue attacking .

2 Pawns and 2 Silvers were exchanged in the 7th file . WATANABE dropped a Silver and a Pawn with 32...S*8c & 33...P*7d to fix her camp . YAMAGUCHI advanced the 8th file Pawn to attack this file , the weak point of Ginkanmuri .

WATANABE dropped a Bishop with 34...B*8g attacking the 7h-Rook . WATANABE made a promoted Bishop , but after sacrificing 2 Pawns in the 8th file , YAMAGUCHI dropped a Bishop with 38.B*5f to remove the 6e-promoted Bishop from the board .

After some moves , WATANABE captured the 9g-Lance and she seemed to recover the position . YAMAGUCHI's Rook escaped with 45.R-6h and tried to continue attacking . Until 53...Sx7c , YAMAGUCHI had a difficulty in attack any more .

(diagram 1)

After both players opened the Bishop line with 1.P-7f & 1...P-3d , ISHITAKA moved up her right Silver with 2.S-4h . This move is usually seen in Sente Ibisha player & Gote Furibisha player's game . By this move Sente can develop his camp without pushing the 2nd file Pawn .

FUJITA pushed the 9th file Pawn and advanced the 3rd file Pawn ,her camp became Haya ISHIDA form . Without the 9th file Pawn push , 2...P-3e will make a game like following line ; 2...P-3e , 3.P-2f R-3b , 4.Bx2b+ Sx2b , 5.B*6e B*3d 6.K-6h G-7b . After the 9th file Pawn push , the previous line has some difference . If Sente pushed the 2nd file Pawn in stead of 4.K-6h , Gote can make Mino gakoi naturally ; 4.P-2f R-3b , 5.Bx2b+ Sx2b , 6.B*6e B*4c , 7.K-6h S-7b! . After S-7b , the line 8.B-5f Bx5f , 9.Px5f K-6b , 10.B*8b is not effective , because the threatened 9a-Lance can escape with 10...L-9c .

ISHITAKA moved up her King with 4.K-6h to protect the 6g-Pawn . By this move , Gote can't move her Rook to 3b without closing the Bishop line . If Gote still move 4...R-3b , Gote will lose an advantage with the following moves ; 4...R-3b , 5.Bx2b+ Sx2b , 6.B*6e G-4b , 7.Bx8c+ . This is because FUJITA moves her Rook after closing the Bishop line .

ISHITAKA made Funa gakoi and advanced the 2nd file Pawn with 10.P-2e . FUJITA floated her Rook with R-3d to defend the 2nd file and make ISHIDA ryu hongumi formation . Before developing attacking formation , FUJITA completed her Hon mino gakoi with 12.S-7b .

ISHITAKA advanced her right Gold to 2f ; Bou Kin strategy , and started attacking with 18.P-3f .

(diagram 2)






ISHITAKA advanced her right Silver with the 3rd file Pawn exchange . And after sacrificing the 2nd file Pawn , her Gold advanced with 21.G-3e . Because FUJITA couldn't protect the 2nd file , she attacked the 5th file .

ISHITAKA captured the 4d-Pawn with 23.Px4d , but this move enabled FUJITA to use her all attacking pieces effectively . After some moves , FUJITA seemed to get an advantage .
