Elephant with Screen Horse Defense and Deferred pawn advancement vs Left Central Cannon with Palcorner Cannon Part 2
In Chapter Seven of "Pawn and Elephant Openings" by Master Huang Shao Long, the Elephant Opening finally makes its debut.
There are 4 sections to this chapter.
In section 1, Red chooses to use the Screen Horse Defense with 3rd Pawn Advancement variation vs Black's Lt Central Cannon with Pawn Ranked Chariot Variation. This remains one of the most commonly used ways of attacking by Black. A classical position is described by Master Huang.
In section 2, Red chooses to advance his third and seventh pawn slightly later, allowing him more flexibility. Black chooses to counter with the 56 Cannons, whereby the palcorner cannon is a very powerful weapon that would exploit an inherent weakness of the elephant opening. Although Red has the advantage, the feasibility of the palcorner cannon would be seen later in other examples.
