GM Hu Ronghua's Sandwiched Horse Defense Treatise Chapter 09

In Chapter 9, Black would choose to play P7+1 very early to deny Red the chance to play P3+1. However, this would be done at the expense of underdevelopment of the left flank. There are three boards in this chapter.

  • Board 1: Red Rapid Central Pawn Attack Variation
  • Board 2: Red adds pressure on Black's left flank very early (R2+8)
  • Board 3: Black plays 57 Cannons
