'Most popular board game in the world...'
« on: February 03, 2018, 07:39:18 am »
...But not a lot of threads. Let's change that.

I've always wanted to be proficient in the 'big three' chess variants (chess, xiangqi, shogi). What are some good English sources for learning xiangqi strategy, be they books, Youtube videos, websites or otherwise?
Who are some of the most famous xiangqi players?
Where can I go to find a list of famous games to study?

Bookmarked. Thanks!
Xiangqi notation looks to be a pain in the neck to learn, though...
