Maneuvering pieces with with help from the chariot 借车运子
This is one of the most commonly used tactics in actual play. Very very practical.
The chariot is the strongest piece on the board. By means of a discovered check, threatening to capture, pinning your opponent's pieces ... etc, you can maneuver your other pieces to better positions to facilitate your attack.
When you maneuver the cannon with aid from the chariot, it is known as 借车使炮. The cannon is postioned to a better place with help from the Chariot by means of a discovered check...etc.
The ancient manuals are loaded with such examples, below are just a few randomly selected examples.
And if anybody has a better term, please email me at admin@xqinenglish.com , and email me soon; I do not wish to do this too many times...Life is too short to be spent on such unnecessary details when I have many mahjong games to attend to.
