Chapter 2 Central Cannon vs Screen Horse Defense 21

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.
This is board 37 and the only board to deal with black's screen horse defense with double pawn ranked cannons variation. GM Liu DianZhong does a very indepth introduction to this opening. Very volatile and complex variation too. I have uploaded a series of boards on this opening earlier this year. Click here ...
Please note that the direct translation of this opening would be central cannon with 7th filed horse vs Screen horse defense with double cross river cannons, but ECCO simply calls it C04 : the central cannon with 7th filed horse vs screen horse defense.
