heres the set up: install Akitaro Watanabe on a server. then install Cell Portal followed by Chum.

the total rez cost is only 4, which is good for the somewhat strapped Jenteki. when the runner approaches he'll have the option to break chum, if he fails, he must then jackout or encounter cell portal at 9 strength. if he fails to break that, he will take 3 net damage and go right back to chum. second verse, same as the first, and because of Watanabe, you only need to pay 3 credits to rerez cell portal to do 3 net damage until runner wises up(which will be quickly). if you have more creds than he does cards, its a real cheap shutout, with solid sting to go with it.

with only 1 watanabe and only 2 each of cell portal and chum in a single core set, some precognition or even aggressive negotiation is in order.

Wouldn't a simple neural blade be just as effective and do the net damage on the final trip through the portal(ie when the corp chooses to stop rezzing Cell Portal) too?

that would work, but chum is stronger, cheaper, and can make cell portal stronger.

If he has a decoder to cheaply break chum, he doesn't need to even bother with the portal if that's the whole fort

Neural Katana works too. Chum -> Neural Katana is my fav starting 2 ICE.

Wasn't there a card in classic netrunner that made it so the runner couldn't jack out, or something? Now THAT would combo well.

I do not understand this conclusion. If he does not break cell portal, the runner gets back to chum and he has to break it again or the corp will raise the portal again. A small bit war during one run...

Ok, if he had Gordian blade, every loop would only cost the runner 1 bit more, and the corp 5, or 2 with akitaro on the fort. Advantage runner. Ok, creds matter but I'd run that. It's a clunky and expensive to maintain fort is what I mainly meant, though one more solid ice on top fixes that.
