I played with White against Aoki Shinichi 9p in this game from the B section of the Kiriyama Cup. Aoki is a rival from my early years as a pro, and I think we have a fairly even win-loss record. My most recent game with him was in 2005. My positional judgment was off the mark in this game, so it should be taken as an example of what not to do, while the variations show the correct plays.
