Tactic: Double Threat  双重威胁 01

双重威胁 Double threat is the tactic discussed here. 

I found this tactic in a beginner's manual <<象棋实战技法>> by 傅宝胜 Fu Baosheng. I think I have seen it mentioned in one or two other manuals. Basically, it is the combination of >=2 tactics with the same move.

When playing Xiangqi, efficiency of the moves is key. If you are able to do many things with one move, the efficiency of that move will be very high and would normally increase your advantage or let you turn the tables on your opponent. The double threat technique exemplifies this concept. 

And if anybody has a better term, please email me at admin@xqinenglish.com , and email me soon; I do not wish to do this too many times...Life is too short to be spent on such unnecessary details when I have many mahjong games to attend to.

Example 1 was the example given in the book mentioned above. I have included it to show the reader what it means. The second example is from the Elegant Pastime Xiangqi Manual, whom I think can exemplify this concept.
