WHATS NEW ARCHIVE :
DECEMBER 2011

31st Dec: Finally managed to upload all the games to the 20th 5 Rams Cup. Also added 2 pages worth of 1r1c endgames. Happy New Year! PS:  http://www.xiangqi.de/xqinenglish_sitemap.html  is the url of a New Year Day's present from Georg of Germany. It is a very nice site map of my site and I could not have done better. I had wanted to do one but after adding more content. Content over cover is what I hope to achieve, but I thank Georg Jeiter from the bottom of my heart. May 2012 be the year Xiangqi gets more recognition in the West or non-Chinese countries. And the following url is a very very interesting video from you tube. Please watch it... http://youtu.be/6bfHqHuXryQ . Very interesting. I thank Chris Hankinson for the url.

23rd Dec: Thanks for the support. Quite a few have told me that the CCbridge manual was very helpful. Please give thanks to Georg Jeiter of Germany. My contributions were meager compared to his work. Mr Peter Sung has also kindly agreed to publish it on the WXF website so that more people can make use of it. Have added another few more games to the 19th 5 Rams Cup. Looks like I will have trouble finishing the endgames database by the end of this year... sigh. Will see what I can do about it over Christmas.
22nd Dec: A few people have emailed me about having problems downloading the ccbridge manual. I checked and the file I had was corrupted so I have uploaded the one that is ok. Stay tuned for more updates. And I have added more games to the 19th 5 Rams Cup. Click here ...

15th Dec: Hit with the flu...sigh. Had to search deep into my library for just 2 boards, on 1c1p vs 1r. The chariot would win hands down most of the time, but these two boards show many great attacking techniques that allow th 1c1p to win. Click here ...

12th Dec 2011 part 2: Suddenly remembered that I have not posted the answers to the daily puzzles in some time. Have uploaded the answers up till 2011-12-08. And I had a looked at the stats just now. I saw that I suddenly had over 10000 hits yesterday, about 90 % from Thailand. I guess some Thai fan is fanatic about my humble site...LOL. I also found out a few days ago that the Russian Xiangqi Federation has used some of my material. I thank the support given , but please add a link or acknowledge my site. Thanks again.
12th Dec 2011: My Sunday is burnt again. Finally decided to upload the incomplete collection of games from the 16th 5 Rams Cup held in December 2011.
