The side pawn opening is an unorthodox opening, although I think it received special mention in the periodical XiangQi a few years ago. I found this file over the internet which was quite interesting.
The ECCO label is A08.
P1+1 for the first move = One horned monster or 獨角獸 in Chinese.
P9+1 for the first move = Nine Tailed Tortoise or 九尾龜 in Chinese.
Red's opening can metamorphosize into the Single Horse Defense, or variations of the Mandarin Duck Cannons or something like the Turtle Backed Cannons.
Word of Caution: This is an UNORTHODOX opening and would most likely NOT catch on. The moves given are skewed, but I have decided to add this anyway, hoping to give all you folks some inspiration and try to think out of the box in your opening. Besides, I hate to conform...LOL.
I have combined the files from the internet into three different lectures with many variations. The first lecture is given here. Two boards have been presented in this page so that you can compare variations and not get lost.
