Horse Cannon Debate:
58c lt ph vs Sch lt e

Chapter two deals with one of the most commonly seen openings in Xiangqi tournaments today : the Central Cannon with 3rd Pawn Advancement vs Screen Horse Defense with 3rd Pawn Advancement.
In this opening Red pushes his 3rd pawn early for attack and Black follows suit. Although a similar formation is seen, this is DRASTICALLY  different for when Black chooses to push the third pawn early.
Section one discusses red 's various ways of attack. The tabia shown here is commonly seen in actual play and competition.

Section two discusses red using the 58 Cannons and attacking with C8+4. This is another very important variation in this opening system.
In Section three: Red would develop his left horse as a proper horse.
