Errors in beginners games
In this column you will find games, which have been played by newbies. Thus, they will contain a couple of bad moves and blunders. We hope that other Xiangqi beginners can learn something from these games. If you use this column as intended, in a first step you will replay the games without looking at the comments. You shall try to find serious mistakes of the side indicated above the diagram. If you think a move was a serious mistake, make a note and suggest a better move. I would recommend that you make your decision before you look at the next move of the opponent.
