Chariot-Horse checkmate/
Chariot-Horse zugzwang 车马冷着

This kill is more of a culmination of the various techniques mentioned above about the chariot and horse. 车马冷着 is the chinese name given. 冷着 means that the move is unexpected and is devastating.
The Chariot-Horse checkmate is very practical and often used seen in actual play. When used correctly, the defending side will have lots of trouble.
I have selected a few games from the Elegant Pastime Xiangqi Manual and a few other ancient manuals to demonstrate this killing technique. It may be a little bit advanced for the beginner but is nevertheless a MUST LEARN!!!
