Chapter 2 Central Cannon vs Screen Horse Defense 12

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. And the good news is, we have FINALLY reached the last board of this section.
In this page, a very often seen variation is seen. Red charges the central pawn in the two boards discussed below. Very exciting variation with little room for error.
The reader is strongly advised to go back to the previous page for revision before viewing this one.

Opening discussed:

Red charges the central pawn twice in the first board, and charges the central pawn once before playing C8=7.
