Xiangqi End Game: Horse variations: Single Horse one Pawn positional wins double advisors double elephants


In normal situation, Single horse with single pawn is unable to win complete advisors and elephants.
In this game, Red could win the game due to Black has not ready to for the defense yet.




Red moves first  

 1. H3+5  E3+1    2. K5+1  E1+3
  3. K5=6  E5-3    4. H5-6  E3+5
  5. H6-8  A5+4    6. H8+9  A4+5
  7. H9+8  A5-6    8. H8+6  K5=4
  9. K6=5  K4+1   10. H6-5  E5+7
 11. H5-4  E3-5   12. H4+6  E5+3
 13. H6+5  E3-5   14. H5+3

Red would have captured Black's advisor and sure win the game.

  1. Nice blog post. Might be interesting if you could discuss what the defensive side (with double advisors/elephants) should be aiming for to draw. And what the attacking side (horse and pawn) should be looking for to win. Also it would be nice to be able to click through the game.
