NAKAMURA advanced the 7th file Pawn with 2.P-7e making Haya ISHIDA shape . SATOMI pushed the 5th file Pawn with 2...P-5d forcing NAKAMURA to close her Bishop line . If still NAKAMURA selected 3.R-7h , she would lose advantage . (about this line , please see my other blog ; Yamajunn's Shogi opening traps . )

NAKAMURA closed her Bishop line with 3.P-6f . SATOMI made Sanken Bisha form with 3...R-3b before any advancement of her left Silver . After protected the 6th file Pawn with 5.S-6g , NAKAMURA also made her camp Sanken Bisha with 6.R-7h .

SATOMI's move 17...R-8d seemed a good move ! By the move , SATOMI aimed at the 8g-Pawn and forced NAKAMURA to push the Pawn with 18.P-8f . SATOMI turned her Rook again with 18...R-2d and captured the 2f-Pawn with 19...Sx2f .

NAKAMURA escaped the 2g-Silver with 20.Sx3f capturing the 3f-Pawn , because NAKAMURA's camp had a defect to be dropped a Silver on 8g .
