Move 82 I really don't understand - I guess that it is to stop the possible B53+? This threat is not so powerful, sente will have to drop a gold at some point, and it will probably lead to gold exchange and gote can drop a gold to the defence again. If you want to strengthen your castle, maybe droping another general might be a better idea. But I think it's not a good direction at this point, it's better to try some attack, e.g. by droping a pawn at 46 then Px P*47 and you start to harass the opponent's camp. Move 84 why move the king? You are weakening the 72 silver and makes sente's edge attack stronger, and again losing move which you would use to build an attack. If you are afraid of Gx72 Sx S*71, just recapture silver with a king. Move 90 shows that you only wasted two moves of the king. Move 94 I think that it was not necessary to drop a silver, especially that your king has quite a nice escaping route. I would think about going for a rook drop, R*68 maybe. As you have forced opponent's rook to move back, now it protects the bishop, and you also used a piece which could be used for attack. Move 96 not sure what to play here, but this looks not so good... Move 100 rook drop is bad here I guess, while e.g. +B45 or +B34 seems to capture the bishop (it might be not so easy after S*35, but it seems that it somehow works and you should be able to capture at least one of those pieces). Move 116 the game should be totally won at this point. At this move, I would think about sacrificing the silver and going for the Px47+, as when it will come to the capturing race, your king has a lot of space to escape, and his king is cornered. Please also note, that if he will recapture at 47, N*35 attacks both 47 and 27, which is a weak point of anaguma when you attack it with a knight. Move 120 looks slow, and this lance is not as dangerous at this point. Also, S*53 seems to capture the rook, the possible continuation might be S*53 R46 Bx Px P*47 and you have a very nice attack. Move 124 that's slow, drop it on 2nd file instead. Move 128 Nooooo ;( This move is such an ugly move. Protect it by the horse instead, which is worth three generals in defense! (according to the proverb) And you horse would be on much better position to attack. You are wasting a precious pawn, which should be dropped at 47. Move 134 why not ove it to 64? Better potential. Move 140 it's not a pleasant position, but S54 seems to be better idea than losing it (and a gold) for a pawn.
