Does anybody know of a Xiangqi website with a good “opening explorer?” I'm talking about where you can select a move and it shows continuations from its database, how much they're played, and result statistics. And then you can select a next move, see the statistics again, and so on. English is best but even Chinese would be workable if I could just get to the starting point. Preferably a site with a large number of high level games in its database.
There's one site provided by the World Xiangqi Federation
(click "position DB")
It has some statistics, but in my experience when there's
less than about 50 games of a particular variant,
then the results are no longer reliable, just random
games. But the major openings have thousands of games played,
so they are quite reliable, I think.
If somebody else knows a different more reliable site (in any language),
I'd interested to know as well.
