My opponent, Yamashita Isao is a top amatuer player.  He is a well-known teacher of Go, and has a large group of young students.  This game was played on INGO at  INGO is a turn-based server, and could be compared to mail Go.  This game started in early July and ended in October.  Yamashita starts with some unusual joseki variations, and continues to show his fighting strength throughout the game.
