To my knowledge and from the information given in <<象棋辞典>> by 屠景明and 杨柏伟, from 1956-1983 there were 18 Chinese National Xiangqi Singles Championships. Amongst these annual events, there were 5 selected "best games". After the 80's there was an explosion in the number of tournaments played and there has never been any more "best game" selected. The selection committee consisted of Xiangqi greats including 谢侠逊 陈松顺 and other highly respected greats of their eras.
These games can be said to represent the highest level of play in their respective eras.
