Horse Cannon Debate:
56c vs Sch 3pa
Chapter one deals with the Central Cannon vs the Screen Horse Defense with third pawn advancement.
Section one discusses red using the riverbank chariot variation while black answers with the retreating right cannon variation.
In section 2, red's riverbank chariot variation would seem insufficient and the screen horse defense would still be able to hold its own. Therefore, people started turning their attention to red using the pawn ranked chariot instead of the riverbank chariot.
In section 3, red makes a huge improvision and uses the 57 cannons to attack. This has led to modern day tabia of this opening system and has been used very extensively in competition.
In Section 4, red experiments with the 56 cannons instead of the 57 cannons.
