Section 1 Chapter 2
Central Cannon vs Screen Horse Defense 01

This is the beginning of chapter 2 and it deals with perhaps the most commonly played opening and counter: red's central cannon (CC) vs black's screen horse defense (SCH).
The first two boards are also MUST read for they are so practical. The reader, beginner, and intermediate alike, should know each of the variations by heart (still memorizing them). If I were to choose the most important must read examples, this would be the page.
I have added two boards for each example so that you can compare the variations for the same example, to have a more wholesome grasp of what went on.
