Introduction to the
Mandarin Duck Cannons P01
B03 中炮對鴛鴦炮

The Mandarin Duck Cannons or 鴛鴦炮 as it is known is one of the unorthodox counters to the central cannon. Black tries to concentrate his forces on his left flank. Red has many ways to attack.
I found an interesting file on the internet, whose url I forgot to save..oops.
It is also the most complete modern day study that I have seen regarding this counter.
This is the first page in a series of boards in this opening. It shows the more traditional plans and strategy for both Red and Black.
2 boards have been given for you to compare the variations.

On to page 02 for more duck ...
