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 section 10 in the book and it is the last of 5 boards on this important variation. The third board is quite a new variation.
Again, the ECCO classification is slightly different, demonstrating some of its discrepancies. However, as it is said on other areas on my website, the ECCO is thus far the closest thing that would allow a decent compilation and sorting out of the xq openings.
The breadth of this variation is tremendous and there are volumes written about it. However, GM Liu DianZhong introduces the most important variations as in the boards.
