In 203 BC, the War between Chu and Han reached its most intense moment.For a year, Xiang Yu besieged Him in Xingyang City, cutting off foreign aid and access to food and grass.
At this time, Chen Ping put forward a plan and asked Liu Bang to buy off some generals of the Chu army with gold. He asked them to spread rumors:

Xiang Yu’s soldiers did not see this situation ah, the battlefield is full of beautiful women, all look silly, Chen Ping took advantage of the chaos and Liu Bang and others fled from the west gate!
Later, Chen Ping in the “Baideng siege” is to help Liu Bang out of trouble.

Liu Bang misjudged the situation and fell into the trap of the Xiongnu. Besieged by 400,000 troops on bai Shan Mountain in Pingcheng, Shanxi for seven days and seven nights, Liu Bang was almost desperate.
But Chen didn’t give up. He saw a glimmer of hope in his despair.
He saw the modu chanyu khan to new hsiungnu spoiled, and often ride with hsiungnu parade, inconvenience.
So Chen ping liu bang to contribute, and sent him to the hsiungnu offer a lot of gold and silver jewelry, to persuade khan withdrawal, finally solve the siege of white board makes the han army to survive.
