Chapter 5 CC vs SaH/SdH 04

Chapter Five deals with the Central Cannon against the Sandwiched Horse Defense (7 boards) and the Single Horse Defense (1 board).
This is a continuation of the previous page. One final board on the sandwiched horse defense is covered. The final board is the sole board in the entire book to discuss the single horse defense.
Although the single horse defense is now seldom used, it still has many diehard fans. But more importantly, it has been popularized again now that the Angel's Pawn is quite frequently played. When black answers with the thundering cannon and red counters with the central cannon, the moves that black makes are basically rooted in the single horse defense. That is why it is still a must learn opening for black.

Have Fun!
