SHIMIZU moved up her King with 2.K-6h to disturb SATOMI to make Gokigen Nakabisha form . However , SATOMI dared to push the 5th file Pawn to select Gokigen Nakabisha .

The line 3.Bx2b+ Sx2b ;4.B*5c seems to give Sente an advantage , but recently some professional shogi players are trying to beat this line . Then SHIMIZU didn't exchange the Bishops , but advanced the 2nd file Pawn with 3.P-2f and the game came back to natural line .

quickly advanced her right Silver onto 4f making Chosoku San-Nana Gin attacking form . SATOMI advanced the left Silver onto 4f to defend against the 4f-Silver .

SHIMIZU moved up her Bishop with 11.B-7g to make a safety Kakoi , and SATOMI pushed the 5th file Pawn with 11...P-5f to exchange the Pawns .
