Chapter 2 Central Cannon vs Screen Horse Defense 15

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.
Starting from today, the left riverbank horse variation 左馬盤河 is discussed. This is another huge topic in the screen horse defense and a very exciting one. GM Liu does a good job of introducing the basic, important variations, neatly summarized in today's boards and the boards to come.
