Silkroad has an influence-oriented playing style and with 3 handicap stones he could go into his favorite kind of games; getting a lot of strength in the center, aiming to attack severely when the right timing comes.
In this game you will see how our teacher kept control over the center, opposing flexible stones to the strong groups of Silkroad. However he managed to pull up a very strong attack and you should fasten your seat belt for the final blow, where a huge capturing race started, leaving no other choice but to eat or to be the meal.
