Chapter 4
Opposite Direction Cannons 03

Chapter Four deals with the Opposite Direction Cannons (ODC) and its major variants
In the previous page, the basics of the left cannon blockade with the slow/deferred ODC variation was shown. In the first board of this page, another variation is shown whereby red plays H8+9.
The second board is concerned with black using the left 3 step tiger first, before playing the odc.
It is the only board given in the book.
Please refer to the relevant ECCO section for more on this opening.
