WHAT'S NEW ARCHIVE :
August 2013

31st Aug: GM Li LaiQun vs GM Hu RongHua in the 3rd ever 5 Rams Cup. Brilliant game!
30th Aug: GM Jiang Chuan vs GM Miao YongPeng in 2004. Click here for the ans to the puzzles up till the 26th of Aug. If you have been following my site, you must have noticed that I have uploaded quite a bit of annotated games recently. The main reason for this is that I hope to upload at least 50-100 games per year and I am off course from this goal. Another announcement to make: starting from September 2013, I will only make uploads from Mon-Fri. That is because my children are growing older and demand more of my time. My first child was only a few months when I started out and now there are two...Sorry for the inconvenience caused. Puzzles will only be uploaded mon-fri for the same reason. Besides, I have a VERY HARD time looking for POC 1 puzzles as of late.
29th Aug: P21 from  "Deceptive Play and Counter-measures" is out.  
28th Aug: GM Xu TianHong vs GM Xu YinChuan in the 1990 Chinese National Singles Championships! A very good game that was collected in many different books. Click here for the ans to the puzzles up till the 24th of Aug.
27th Aug: P20 from  "Deceptive Play and Counter-measures" is out.  A slight mistake was made in the CCbridge manual edition upload a few days ago and it has been corrected. Sorry, am just too busy the past few days. Click here for version 20130826 ...
26th Aug: "Young" GM Zhao GuoRong vs the late GM Yang GuanLin back in 1978.Click here for the ans to the puzzles up till the 22nd of Aug. LOL, just checked my annotated games upload, I seemed to have developed a love for GM Zhao's games unknowingly...lol. 
25th Aug: CCbridge is the XiangQi program/engine that I use to generate the stuff seen on this site. A new updated version has been done and uploaded. Click here .... There are still some functions which I do not know how to use or what they mean. Feel free to contribute.
Disclaimer: CCbridge is a rather 'mysterious' program. Sometimes, my Kapersky would deem it to be 'funny' but so far no harm has been done to my computer. It is the BEST program there is and the functions are unparalleled. There are also many resources. Just visit the sites listed at the end of the pdf and you will know what I mean.
24th Aug: GM Zhao GuoRong vs Master Shang Wei in 2005 has been published. Click here for the ans to the puzzles up till the 20th of Aug. 
23rd Aug: P19 from  "Deceptive Play and Counter-measures" is out. 
22nd Aug: P18 from "Deceptive Play and Counter-measures" is out. Click here for the ans to the puzzles up till the 18th of Aug. Dr Rene Gralla has been kind to inform me about the results of the recent German XiangQi championships last week. He has also kindly presented a link to his report on the subject. http://www.zeit.de/sport/2013-08/xiangqi-schach-china-selbstversuch . The Germans are now top in the number of visitors to my site, as shown from my stats and it seems that they have taken a very high interest in the game. The online edition of the very prestigious German weekly DIE ZEIT (that is THE OPINION LEADER in Germany) has published a lengthy reportage that has been written by Dr Rene on the German XiangQi Championship 2013 at Hamburg, and that should be a huge testament to the popularity of the game in Germany or Europe for that matter. Dr Rene has also kindly given me some photos taken of the event. I will find time to do a page on it.
And I am proud to announce that my site contains over 1800 pages now...

20th Aug: P17 from  "Deceptive Play and Counter-measures" is out. Click here for the ans to the puzzles up till the 16th of Aug.  And please read the statement below. 
Attention: A very grave situation has been brought to my attention. A visitor to this site from China, has said that when he was viewing http://www.xqinenglish.com/opldzc1howtolearnxqopenings04.html , he was redirected to a Chinese advertising site, and thus was unable to view the next page or link given on my website. I have checked the page mentioned but nothing seems wrong. I tried Google Adsense for fun two years ago but for  some unknown reason they decided to stop me from using it and since then I have not added any advertisements to my site. I fear that my site is compromised or hacked because I recall 2-3 incidents of internet "attacks" over the last two years where there was a huge increase in the flow to my site for no apparent reason on certain days, an outlier from the usual stats. I am a computer illiterate with very limited computering skills, and still do not know what a javascript is. And like I have said many times before, I pay a hefty fee monthly to mtwebcenters , a company based in the US for their services and a friend has had to help me prepare the templates so I can cut and paste the stuff I do. That also explains the simplicity, homogenity or boredom of the pages. So, please, if anybody out there has experienced similar situations, please take screenshots or even better still, make a video so that I can alert the company to take necessary measures. I have made no money from this site thus far, and I will try to keep the site on as long as possible so that more will get to learn and enjoy XiangQi as I do.

There are now only about 15 games left...The pieces of the puzzle are falling in place now... And a million thanks must be given to Mr Rikard Skotnicki for sharing us the records of his games in the EU Championships in June. One of the players has offered to ask the other German players for their records in the EU Championships when the German Championships starts in one or two wks time.

7th Aug: P40 from Master Shang's "How to Get Out of Trouble" is out. Also, a million thanks must be given to my friend who insists on being anonymous for helping do records 41-60 from the European Championships. I could not have done a better job myself. And I am waiting patiently for the games by some of the players themselves. Have contacted a few more. Once I have all or most of the games, I will try to arrange them in order of the rounds. So, in the meantime, please check out the pages 1-12 and the last page of the European Championships. The games are now uploaded. And please, if you find any mistakes, please tell me. I need trouble shooters.
By the way, I am conducting a short survey about the site. I desperately need response. Please go to the facebook page by clicking on the "Find us on Fb" button beneath the menu bar on the left. Thanks!
