op ECCO C0x-C4x
Central Cannon vs Screen Horse p01

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...

ECCO Cxx Central Cannon vs Screen Horse Opening part 1.

           C0x-C4x 中炮对屏风马

The Central Cannon vs Screen Horse Defense is the most played opening. It is such a huge topic that it is impossible to use one page to describe. I may have to spend the rest of my life slowly adding to it...
Anyway, I have divided this section into two parts for practical purposes.
