2nd Dec: P70 from Master Shang's "How to Get Out of Trouble" is out. Click here for the ans of the puzzles that have been published up till the 30th of Nov. And my diary/archives for the work done in Nov 2013 are also uploaded. By the way, for those who follow the news occasionally, young GM Xie Jing won this year's National Single's Championships in China, dethroning last year's winner, GM Wang TianYi  who came in second in the same event. Another noteworthy point to make is that Master Zheng WeiTong came in 2nd also, tied with Wang. There seems to have been a change of guard in the XiangQi scene in China. "Old" GMs do not seem to do as well over the past few years and there have been new Champions each year for the past few years. GM Xie (who was already GM; he made GM last decade at a very tender age...) is allegedly GM Hu RongHua's last disciple and he is the second person from ShangHai to have won the coveted trophy this decade, the previous winner from ShangHai being GM Sun YongZheng a few years earlier. ShangHai and BeiJing have been the powerhouses the past few tournaments with GMs Sun YongZheng, Xie Jing, Wang TianYi and Jiang Chuan splitting the trophy between for the past 4 years. Wonder when will Master Zheng get his turn?!
