Small knight’s move !

Review on game against 8D on Fox Go Server( FGS )

Black: drug28 ( me )

White : mado07

I choose to review this game because I played interesting knight move( keima ) on top right corner which was popular a while ago. That keima move was played against me once and I was curious how to deal with it, I did asked Zhao Baolong( CEGO teacher in EGF Academy), here I am going to show you how to deal with it. Also on lower right I put pressure on white and I won the game, there I did use a ”bump move” which Hayashi Kozo, 6p, Japan showed at EGC Oberhof 2017 . Both moves in the game were successful !
