Chapter 2 Central Cannon vs Screen Horse Defense 34

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 last section which deals mainly with black playing the screen horse variation with early 3rd Pawn Advancement. It is also a continuation of the previous upload on this opening.
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 crazy and there are volumes written about it. However, 
GM Liu DianZhong introduces the most important variations as in the boards.
