Introduction to the
Opposite Direct Cannons p04
Black attempts H8+7

We will continue the last bit on the introduction to the Big Variation of the ODC in this board. After going through the previous board ( p03 )  , we see that black is still unable to wrestle the lead away from red. Black attempts H8+7 this time to try to fortify the center...
Unfortunately, it does not work either. Visitors to my site are encouraged to go through the boards though to see how the Xiangqi experts in China try to improvise on this old opening.
Again, the reader is encouraged to go through the Ancient manuals,
in particular The Secret in the Tangerine and The Plum Flower Manuals to get a hang of the opening.
I have included two boards for your perusal to compare variations in case you get lost.

Back to page 03 ...
On to page 05 for more on the ODC ... we now get to the Small Variation part...finally!
