11th Sept: Added another endgame's page from the book by GM Liu Dianzhong.  Click here...
10th Sept: Did quite a bit of checking and house cleaning of my site. If there are any broken links, please tell me. After much consideration, I decided to add a new subsection to the openings section, basically a book by GM Liu Dianzhong's book on the fundamentals of opening theory. I did this to make the openings section more cohesive. I had already done a tiny portion in the openings intro section many months ago, and will transfer that stuff over the next few days/weeks. Just hover your cursor over the menu bar on the openings section and you should see it, or click here ...

8th Sept: An annotated game played way back in 1979 has been uploaded, been busy with the endgames portion as of late. Shows some of the basics of the elephant opening as explained by GM Hu Ronghua. The elephant opening has come a long way since then! I found this in a tattered 1979 version of <<北方棋藝>> ,which later became simply <<棋藝>>, the main Xq periodical in China today... Should be nostalgic for those 40 and above....lol. And special thanks must be given to Mr Felix Tan of the AXF for providing a faster way to kill in the db 20120831 mmlm puzzle! Click here ...
