Daring to face exposed cannon

タオ チューン

, ,

Move 3b is a typical deceptive play that Blue drives his Cannon across the river. Red can have two variations: H8+7 or R1.2. If he plays H8+7, he will be passive in his defense play. If he plays R1.2, he plays positively, daring to face an exposed Cannon and turning Blue's tricks against Blue himself.

Deceptive play

タオ チューン

, , ,

Move 6r, Red forces a sacrifice of his Pawn. It is a deceptive play with hidden traps. If Blue moves R2.3, he will suffer irretrievable losses. If he moves R2+1, Blue has still enough strength to contend with Red.
