It's an interesting Yagura game with double Bogin(Climbing Silver).

20.N-3g is in quesion. I think it's often better to keep your right kNight on the original square when you choose Climbing Silver. Instead of 20. N-3g, Trading Bishops, Silvers and pawns on 2d would have been clearly better such as P-2d Px2d Sx2d Sx2d Bx2d Bx2d Rx2d.

26. Bx8f, This is a very good move to take the Silver on 8f by Bishop, not by Rook since it will be able to promote like B-5i+ later.

28. P-4f, This seems to try to activate the kNight on 3g such as P-4e, Px4e Nx4e, but it's too slow to be realized. I think B-4f instead of 28.P-4f would have been better to threaten to take the Rook on 8b and increase the connection with the kNight on 3g.

28. S*1e, Very good Silver drop to make the kNight on 3g floating.

32. S*2d, Very sharp counterattack. Exclamation

34.N*1d, Good kNight drop to kill Sente's Rook.

37. Sx6g+ I think Px2d instead would have been better. In yagura, it's often better not to neglect sacrificing pawn advancement ahead of your King such as P-2d or P-8f.

39.Nx4e, I think it's too slow. Instead of that, my recommendation is P*7h Kx7h S*6i(!) Kx6i Rx8g+ S*7h S*5h K-6h G*6i Kx5h +Rx7h for approaching Sente's King. P*7h is a tactical sacrificing pawn drop to invite Sente's King closer to Gote's promoted Bishop on 3h.

42.R*7a, Excellent and decisive Rook drop to threaten to take Sente's promoted Bishop on 5a and to aim at S*7i to mate Sente's King.

Overall, Gote's attack is fluent in this game.

thank you very much for review, I will try to not make such slow moves like 39. Nx4e. I see, your handling with pawns is excellent, which i found out by your first review of my previous game, but this has confirmed it. I always knew pawns are very important pieces, which can do lot of damage, but only after it was shown on my own game, i think i understand now much better their potential.
