op ECCO B0x Central Cannon vs Rare Counters OPENINGS...

The study of Xiangqi openings is a huge topic whereby it is impossible for me alone to introduce all. If anyone is interested in helping, please email me at xqinenglish@gmail.com or admin@xqinenglish.com . I will try to present each opening in as simple terms as possible and categorize them according to the ECCO system. Even though I personally do not agree with some of the ways it is arranged, it is still the best system on Xiangqi openings that I know to date, and the ONLY decent one that is present. http://www.xqbase.com/ecco/ecco_intro.htm is the url for those interested, though it is completely in Chinese.
The WXF recommendations will be used first and foremost. However if there are no current translations, I will use my own.
Abbreviations will be used because typing is hard work...and some of the abbreviations may seem funny but you will get the hang of them quickly. I have added a short article for those interested. Click here...
 is the url where I have found some of the openings. Please applaud the hard work of the men who did them! 

In this section, ECCO B0x is discussed.
It is a collection of rare or unusual counters of the Central Cannon, including the Parrot Cannons, the Turtle Back Cannons, the Right 3 Step Tiger (the Left 3 Step Tiger is considered orthodox)...
As these are relatively rare counters to the Central Cannon, they are hard to collect. It will take some time...
Being rare would also mean to a certain extent that they are unorthodox. Have Fun!
