Xiangqi (Chinese Chess) Opening Tabia and their Principles:
Same Direction Cannons: Ranked Chariot vs. Filed Chariot
This opening system is perhaps oldest opening system there is in Xiangqi. The very first board in the Secret in the Tangerine dealt with this theme. In "Opening Tabia" Master Yan Wenqing and Grandmaster Zhang Qiang demonstrated some of the newer ways of playing this opening system. It is a must learn topic for ALL Xiangqi players.
The Webmaster would like to thank Master Yan Wenqing and Grandmaster Zhang Qiang for allowing the author to translate their work into English and share with the English speaking World.
The Webmaster has also made short videos which are available on Youtube .
