56 Pattern
Hikaru plays Waya in an insei study game. The position on the board is derived from Shusaku (B) versus Kadono Chuzaemon played in July 1843 (that is the earliest appearance of the Shusaku Fuseki among Shusaku's games). But one of the corner positions is different from the original game. (see also chap. 81-83). Waya says that Hikaru isn't Sai, but plays a little bit like him. Is this why it was done this way?
