Handmade ponnuki by Yukawa Mitsuhisa, 9p ("YUKA" on IGS)

Yukawa Mitsuhisa, 9-dan from the Kansai Kiin ("YUKA" on IGS) tried it several times.
Here is the successful example.
He spent 4 (!) moves in the center and crushed "CHIRO", 5-dan who is clearly a professional player too.

Ponnuki in the center is usually 30 points worth. How about this one? Is it 29?
If so, here is the new proverb:

"Handmade ponnuki is 29 points worth!"

It's an old game. That time 5d* was one of the highest ranks
