Nakamura was white. The opening variant surprised me. I expected Hasegawa to play more aggressive in order to stop Nakamura from winning the match. I do not know exactly what was Hasegawa's plan, but from what I see from the moves they played, Hasegawa seemed to have no preparation for this opening. Moves 1-18 are typical theory. White advantage has been proved here. Moves 19 and 21 tried to lead to positional style, but it does not work here because black does not have enough structures to keep it up. By the 27th move black has lost control over the position already. By the 36th move Nakamura took over the attack. From that point, Hasegawa began to fight well, and made several good defense moves. However, Nakamura was careful, and avoided careless attack. He tried to balance lower side instead, and used upper side material to connect with left side space. Although Hasegawa defended well, there was nothing to do stop white going to upper side. Move 62 - preparing lines and space. Move 68 - amazing move! Definitely the most beautiful move in whole match! White was attacking two different overlines at the same time. Black could block only against one of them. The game ended after 72nd move, catching overline! Great Nakamura! I admire the way he plays renju! Thanks to both Nakamura and Hasegawa for these wonderful games! Congratulations to Nakamura for defending the Meijin title with excellent score!
