Chess world champion plays a game of Shogi.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Gamer-man wrote on 2011-11-26 UTCBelowAverage ★★here does he come up with 'ominously near to defeating 3 dan-Japanese Eiichiro Ishiyama. '?? Ishiyama's king was never in any danger, white's material lead was unimportant and probably intentional as black had the stronger attack afterwords. And Ishiyama didn't even need to delay his attack to defend against kasparovs. Momentum was on Ishiyama the entire time and he probably could have given kasparov a comfortable handicap. It is sorta like saying Morphy was perilously close to losing the box opera game. All in all, Habu's play at a chess tournament was much much much more impressive than kasparov's play at shogi here.
