Firstly,scratch Lu Xun.This is even before the 210s so Lu Xun isn't in any military position of authority.Replace with Lu Su.
Next is that Sun Quan's troops are obviously not unlimited.He's sending enough force east to break into mountains.Translation = a lot of troops.
Therefore his western defenses are going to be lessened.Therefore they're going to be very vulnerable to a Wei attack with their weakened defenses not to mention that their best commanders will undoubtedly go with the invasion east.
Next is this assumption that Zhou Yu can beat Liu Bei?Not a chance.Zhou Yu goes east and hits a wall(literally) against Liu Zhang.Cao Cao attacks out of He Fei.Zhou Yu turns around and is walled off by Liu Bei AND will have to deal with counterattacking Liu Zhang troops.Zhou Yu is far far far from being an exemplary commander so he gets smashed.
Cao Cao's smashes into northern Yangzhou and Liu Bei turns and grabs and south Yang.Then they either divide along a geographical line or face off for Yangzhou.
