Angel's Pawn with Right Central Cannon vs Thundering Defense with Same Direction Cannons variation.
Black chooses H2+1 ...  
E17 仙人指路转左中炮对卒底炮转顺炮

 In this board, the Angle's Pawn and Thundering Defense quickly evolves into the Same direction cannons. By choosing the same direction cannons, black signals that he is going on the attack and opts for a more proactive counter. There is little room for error in such an opening.
The first board is concerned with red's 7th file horse attacking the center; while the second board deals with red using the 56 cannons.
This variation was quite popular in the 80's but is still often seen in competitions nowadays!
I have based this board primarily on Master 阎文清 and Master 张强's work after briefly checking it against different manuals by different authors.
