A beautiful game shortly played (on 2nd Oct 2014) by Takemiya Masaki which shows the smartness of a SanRenSei/Cosmic player… and the beautiness of this style. – You can find many suprising moves inside this game and – very typical for influence players – sacrifying lots of stones a territory player probably never would give up.
The very interesting aspect of this game is the answer of white to black’s move no. 5 (K3) herewith 69 year old Honda K. targets at to break Takemiya’s SanRenSei opening on K4. Takemiya just flips his strategy and establishes a very strong base on top instead on bottom side…
40th Japanese Meijin, preliminary:
Honda Kunihisa 9p (Black) vs. Takemiya Masaki 9p (White)… w+1.5
