In Xiangqi, as the king is limited to the palace, two checks on the king at the SAME time is often possible. When the side under check can only resolve one of the checks, but not both with the same move, a checkmate would occur. There are many combinations to this type of checkmate but the cannons is perhaps the most often used. Discover checks also play a part. This is another relatively common type of checkmate.
When there are 3 checks performed simultaneously, it is called a simultaneous triple check. In Xiangqi, a maximum of 4 checks can be performed at the same time. Please refer to the Wiki page on Xiangqi for the examples and further clarification.
