For beginners,
1C2H catch king in 5 moves

There are many interesting endgame compositions in Xiangqi, some even without kings...
This game was provided by Mr Felix Tan. I have taken the liberty, at 2am in the morning to show why some moves are not applicable. Please email me should you find any mistakes in my explanations.
Such games are educational in nature. They are used normally to teach the beginner the correct use of certain pieces. There are certain rules though to follow.l
In this game, there is no red king. Red has to checkmate black in 5 moves. However, there is catch... You cannot
 win by stalemate...
