1r d 1c2a. Please go to the previous page before you start this one. This would let you appreciate the difference(s) between the horse and the cannon. Although it is one of the easier endgames, nevertheless, the 1c2a side must know how to defend or a positional win as in the third board would be possible for the chariot side.
I have redone GM Liu Dianzhong's lectures adding footnotes to his explanations to make things easier for the newcomer and I have tried my best to add the explanations to some of the variations to help the beginner appreciate the game better. If you discover any mistakes or have better moves, please email me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
