Chapter 2 Central Cannon vs Screen Horse Defense 13

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 new section, instead of the edge cannon for chariot exchange variation, black plays A4+5. As the ecrx variation contains many many traps for both sides, some players would opt for this variation, which is also aggressive in its own right.
The most often played variations are discussed in the following two boards.
