59Cannons 7th Pawn  Advancement and Pawn Ranked Chariot Vs Screen Horse Defence 7th Pawn Advancement with Edge Cannon for Chariot Exchange
Red C5+4 variation and C9+4 variation 

ECCO:C45 五九炮过河车互进七兵对屏风马平炮兑车

Board 1 variation C5+4                                                     Board 2 red side cannon C9+4 

This is the second page discussing red's 59 cannons against black's answers with the screen horse defence with edge cannon for chariot exchange variation.
Very complex. The variations and sub variations and sub-sub variations are guranteed to make you dizzy, but I have tried to present the most rudimentary variations here.

For abbreviation's sake,
59c7paprr = central cannon with 7th pawn advancement and pawn ranked chariot,
sch7pappdc = screen horse defence with 7th pawn advancement and edge cannon for chariot exchange.
I used ppdc for edge cannon for chariot exchange because it is the hanyu pinyin abbreviation for this variation.
This work has been collected from a few openings manuals and I have tried to present them in more readable format. I believe it is the basic theory of this opening variation and it also
presents the generally "orthodox" moves. I do not expect that anyone will be a master of this opening after going through the boards but at least , do not make the basic mistakes or go against the principles of this opening.
