One Horse and One Cannon Endgames p01

The cannon and horse, when combined offers multiple attacking choices. With the additions of an adivsor(s) and an elephant(s) to act as cannon mounts, the opponent's advisors and elephants are in danger. The cannon piece is also very mobile and can also sneak in smothered cannon checkmates, or horse cannon checkmates. And as in so many of the other endgames, the king plays a crucial role in helping to control the files.
In this section, the 1h1c combination is pit against the elephants and the advisors.
