Sente : SHIMIZU Ichiyo (Jo-ryu 6 dan)
Gote : SATOMI Kana (Jo-ryu Meijin , Jo-ryu Osho , Kurashiki Tohka)
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 .
SHIMIZU 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 .
Replying SATOMI's moves , SHIMIZU advanced her left Silver to control the center area . SHIMIZU jumped her right Knight with 20.N-4e and sacrificed a Pawn with 21.P-5d to attack the 5th file . SATOMI sacrificed her Rook with 22...Rx5e and started counter-attacking with 23...P*5g .
After 120 moves , SATOMI won the game .
