Chapter three deals with the Same Direction Cannons. There are 3 sections to this section. In the first section, the ranked chariot vs filed chariot variation is discussed.
This is perhaps the oldest opening in Xiangqi, and it is still played with reasonable frequency even today, having survived for centuries.
In the first section, the ranked chariot vs filed chariot variation is discussed. GM Liu does a very very good job of explaining the most basics of this opening.
In the first board, he starts off with the famous sacrifice horse for kill in 13 moves variation, ie, the first game of the first volume of The Secret in the Tangerine.
It was a quite a short board, so I took the liberty to add in the other variations to make a super complicated one.
