Introduction to the Central Cannon vs Screen Horse Defense with Double Cross River Cannons Variation P04
ECCO C04 中炮七路馬對屏風馬

 

This is the 4th page and the first one to show some of the improvements on this opening when it was played in the 80's. Black gains the upper hand in most of the variations in this one. See to moves to understand why!
A point to repeat: ECCO assigns this opening as C04 or rather the central cannon with 7th file horse vs Screen horse defense. It can be misleading. It is still preferable to be called the Double Cross River Cannons Variation of the Screen horse defense.
Two boards have been given for you to compare the variation. Enjoy.
