30th July:Page 9 on 1h1p vs 1c1a/e endgames are out. More complicated that I had thought. Never did have the patience to go through them move for move, variation for variation. I tried adding some of the moves to show the beginner the final kill. It is way past midnight, the mind is the clear, and broadcasts of the Olympics are beckoning...if you find any mistakes, pls tell me!
29th July: A new commentated game by GM Wang Bin. Click here ... Time for the olympics...sigh...hope that one day Xiangqi will be able to join it as a mindsport!
28th July: 3 days worth of answers to the daily puzzles are out.

24th July: Yesterday's entry should have been the 23rd...LOL. Anyway, have uploaded another three more boards on the basics of 1h1lp vs 1a2e endgames in the series of lectures by GM Liu Dianzhong. Many priniciples to follow. Still rusty after the break, hope to be able to increase efficiency and production to that of a few months ago...LOL. Have fun.
22nd July: Back still hurts. Boss went on holiday...had to do double shifts...sigh. Anyway, to those who missed me...(I am sure there are...) sorry for the delay. Will slowly work my way back to daily production as before. Uploaded the ans to all of the puzzle games that I had done before...
Click here . There has been no Xiangqi for me for the past week. But I have been thinking, I think I will still gear my site to the the fundamentals.
14th July: Had a visit to an excolleague at my old hospital for some tests. All is well, but I think I need to take a 10 day break to recuperate. Will be uploading stuff again starting the 22th July. Will upload the ans to the puzzles over the next few days.
13th July: Finally managed to upload the ans to the extra mmlm puzzle presented to me by Mr Felix Tan of the AXF. C

9th July: Added the first page on horse endgames by GM Liu. This is the place to start to learn how to use the horse.
8th July: Have been feeling unwell the past 2 days. Too tired to add much, but p03 , and the last of the endgames on pure pawn endgames by GM Liu Dianzhong have been uploaded. Stats show that there has been a decrease in the number of visitors to my site since the publication of the endgames...LOL. But I will continue uploading the endgames section as one must learn them well to really have a good fundamental beginning in Xiangqi. Learning Xiangqi Endgames = learning the fundamentals! Have fun!
7th July: Was only able to upload p02 of GM Liu's endgame lecture notes on pawn endgames.
6th July: A VERY busy day!!!!!! Was only able to add the ans up till the 2nd of July, 
click here .... and also two more variations for the A64 opening. (click here ) . Also corrected the wrong link to the ans yesterday. Thanks to Richard for telling me that. Please, there is only one me doing this entire site, and I am bound to be make many mistakes. If you see any, please tell me!
5th July: It has been sometime since I did something for endgames. One of the reasons for that is that although it is one of the most important aspects of the game, finding the relevant boards and classifying them took too much time. So I decided to do something more efficient....I decided to base basic endgame theory on one book while adding bits and pieces here and there. The book I chose was authored by GM Liu Dianzhong which is for beginners and contains over 250 examples, discussing everything there is to basic endgame theory. I admit that I never did pay my dues for endgame theory, but I think it is high time that I did so and share it with you in the process. So, click here for the first page on endgame theory by GM Liu, or hover your cursor over the Endgame button in the menu and a submenu would appear. 250 boards, that would take a few months, interspersed with the other usual stuff....have fun!
4th July: Page 2 of the discussion on the cpc is out. Click here ...
Also uploaded the ans up till the 30th of last month. Click here ....
3rd July: As promised, the first in a series of boards discussing the Cross Palace Cannon. Click here ...

Also uploaded the ans up till the 28th. Click here .... Hmmm..I think I have uploaded over 1000 puzzles over the past year...The June What's New Archives are also out...Click here ....
1st July : Rough day at work... sheesh... Was only able to add one page on a series of midgame tactics on attacking by unlinking your opponent's elephants in attack. Click here ...
