    World Championship of Chinese Chess, Round 1

    I am playing in the World Championship of Chinese Chess or Xiangqi in Munich Germany.
    I just completed my first round game. I seemed to be playing well and possibly even to be winning. Unfortunately, I blundered on move 26 and lost.
    My first round opponent was the Champion of Vietnam. Here is the game:
    P = Pawn or Soldier
    C = Cannon
    H = Horse or Knight
    R = Rook or Chariot
    E = Elephant or Bishop or Minister
    G = Guard
    K = King or General
