Round 2
2015 14th World Xiangqi Championship
Venue: University of Applied Languages (SDI), Munich, Germany

  1. C2=5  …………



Central cannon opening very common for non Chinese/Vietnamese players in this tournament

  1. …………  H8+7    2. H2+3  P7+1
  3. H8+9  …………

Normally H8+7.

  3. …………  R9=8    4. R1=2  H2+3
  5. C8=7  …………

Both reach 57 cannons vs Screening Horses variation.

  5. …………  C8+4

C8+4 is not idea. In previous move, Red C8=7 was prepared for R9=8 in next move. To counter-play this, Black should play R1=2. If Red still R9=8, then Black can C2=4 to block the movement of Red's chariot.

  6. R9=8  C2=1

? Better would be R1=2.

  7. R8+7  …………

Excellent move.

  7. …………  H3-5    8. P9+1  E3+5

May be C8=5.

  9. A4+5  H5-3   10. R8-3  H3+4
 11. P3+1  …………

Smart move.

 11. …………  P7+1

Not a good idea. P1+1 would be better.

 12. R8=3  H4+5

mistake.

 13. R3-1  C8+2   14. P5+1  …………

Excellent move.

 14. …………  R1=2   15. P5+1  P5+1
 16. H3+5  R2+4   17. R3+3  P5+1

The idea is good, however not in this game.

 18. C5+2  R2=5   19. C7=5  …………

Good move.



 19. …………  R8+6

May be C8-7.

 20. C5+3  R5+2   21. +C=8  …………

Excellent move.

 21. …………  A4+5   22. C8-4

One of the Black's chariot will be captured. Black resigns.
