  nasmichael: Now that's a fight. To let the actual material be unbalanced, but conversion to pawn units be equal, and hand castle, and FIGHT for the win, is wonderful. Looked like a totally different kind of game.

Ending with Bishops and pawns vs kings, wonderful show.

Actually, castling by hand is the only way it's done in Shogi (you already know that), which is probably why Habu had no qualms about playing such a maneuver. Mir Sultan Khan also used to play such maneuvers, since the chess he grew up playing in India was a bit different from the western chess he became famous for.

Aug-21-18  Atking: After the subtle 21.NxNd5! white closed the center to his favor. May be 20...NxN 21.bxN Ba3 22.Rb1 Bb7 should be played. A very interesting fight indeed.
