GM Liu Dianzhong's Endgame Lectures Chapter 08
Chariot Cannon Endgames 05

This is the 5th page in Chapter 8 which is focused on 1r1c endgames.
This is a continuation of the previous page.
In the first board, a positional win by 1r1c1e against 1r2e is shown. It seems to be a correction of an ancient manual puzzle.
The remaining three boards discuss 1r1c2a2e vs 1r2a2e. Mostly lecture notes with wordy explanations were given in the first two boards.
Please go to the previous page before you start this one.
I have redone GM Liu Dianzhong's lectures adding footnotes to his explanations to make things easier for the newcomer and I have tried my best to add the explanations to some of the variations to help the beginner appreciate the game better. If you discover any mistakes or have better moves, please email me at or
