Chapter 2 Central Cannon vs Screen Horse Defense 01

Chapter two deals with the perhaps the most played opening and counter in Xiangqi today: the Central Cannon vs Screen Horse Defense.
There are 13 sections to this chapter.
In the first section, the 7th pawn advancement and pawn ranked chariot variation is pit against the 7th pawn advancement and edge cannon for chariot exchange variation (yes, WXF recommendation) of the Screen Horse. GM Liu Dianzhong goes through the basics with a little bit of history on the evolution of this opening.
