Below is a collection of the games played by the greats of Xiangqi. There are dozens of Xiangqi tournaments taking place in different parts of the world at any moment in the world. It would be impossible to show all the games. I will however try to select games played by the masters and/or grandmasters and I will try to annotate the games as much as possible when I have the time. As I know next to nothing about database building, I will try to sort the games in order of the names of the competitions and the years held. And please forgive me if some of the games are a little bit outdated. And as my own skill level is limited, sometimes I cannot see through the beauty of the moves made, so if you find anything wrong with my explanation, TELL ME!!!
I have always believed that each game played by the masters and grandmasters are full of things to learn from, be it the openings, the midgames or the endgames. Try to soak up as much as possible, for it is through imitation that we learn best.
Mistakes will be made so please contact me should you find any and I will correct them ASAP. Please click on the games that you would want to see. Have fun!
If you itch for more games, the WXF database by Mr Peter Sung is most impressive!
