About a week before this game Iyama lost the Meijin to Yamashita, but he still holds the Judan title. He was now challenging Yuki for the Tengen. Iyama had won the first game of the Tengen title match on Oct. 24 by resignation, and he has Black in this second game. Yuki has a powerful fighting style, but seems to have difficulty making it work against Iyama.
