This game is the final of qualifying rounds for the Ryusei Cup, a tournament televised by CATV, a Go and Shogi channel.  In the qualifying rounds we have 1 hour on the clocks.  I have White, and my opponent is Yo Kagen 9P, a steady and tenacious player.  He was in the Kisei, Meijin and Honinbo leagues for several years until about the year 2000.
