Of course, you may also type "elephant opening". But so far, maybe because the volume that I have uploaded is not great, the search function is still weak. I envision one day that you can use youtube to search for the games of the greats played with a particular opening or a particular opponent. Please subscribe to my youtube channel for more. I hope one day you can get to see all the games that you want played by the greats on youtube or facebook anytime you want.

The game that has been uploaded today can be found at this link. I have been busy with the dictionary, still in the process of writing it and trying to make up for lost time. So far things are going ok. Am also doing some other Xiangqi related work, hoping that the game will be spread to the West more easily. And from Jan 2016 onward, I will sporadically upload material each week from Mon to Fri at this link, db 2016 . For annotated games and puzzles, they will be published at the end of the week. For opening theory or midgame tactics or endgame tactics, they would be published at least once a week, under the relevant section.

Or click here for the menu page. It has been another great year and I wish everyone all the best in Xiangqi in the coming new year. Uploads have been decreased as compared to past years because I have been hard at work writing the english dictionary on Xiangqi as mentioned. Work is slow and tedious but going nicely. Hope it would be out in the following months. Also, click here for the archives for the past half a year.
