Should this game be in Bill Kills or the art of sacrifice?
I don't know why this game is not more famous but it's the illustration of the shibori. After black 195 white seems dead and continue the game looks out of question.

Sakata was not in a good shape in the beginning. After 154 move, each move by white forced next black move from lower left to lower right. Sakata made a lot of suicide moves, but, finally, black stones in the upper side was killed by 186. It is miracle to me, but it might be easy for Sakata.
