 Comment by Honinbo Shuye:
“Black’s twenty-sixth move is premature, and it has the effect of precipitating the contest too early in the game. The territory around that point is dangerous ground for Black. N 17 would have been better.”

28. L 5. Leading out toward the center. ("Ikken taka tobi”)

 Comment by Honinbo Shuye:
