Chapter 2 Central Cannon vs Screen Horse Defense 09

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 this page, still under section 1, the 56 Cannons variation is discussed, as a continuation of the boards thus far only one board is discussed. This is a less firework filled variation and balanced development is more important than a blitzkrieg style. There are two boards in this page.
The reader is strongly advised to go back to the previous page for revision before viewing this one.

Opening discussed:
ECCO :C48 Central Cannon with Pawn Ranked chariot and 7th Pawn Advancement vs Screen Horse Defense 7th Pawn Advancement with Edge Cannon for Chariot Exchange Variation
Red plays the 56 Cannons variation
