9th World Xiangqi Championships

Paris, 31st July to 6th August, 2005

The most valuable source about the WXC undoubtedly is the official tournament site hosted by the Asian Xiangqi Federation and maintained by Felix Tan
Here you can find a list of contestants, the results of the single rounds, an hounors roll with the price winners, and all the games

But there are other resources who try to cover the first WXC in Europe:

Jean-Marie Chauvet maintains the website of the hosting French XQ-Association: Le Bréviaire du Xiangqi
Claus Tempelmann has posted live(ly) reports about every round in the Discussion Forum of the DXB/EXF
The XQ-Newsgroup has a lot of comments, reports and games about the WXC from various contributors
Pictures have been published by Jean-Marie Chauvet, Felix Tan, Claus Tempelmann and Christoph Harder

Finally some chinese links which showed up in my logfiles:
A blog entry with links to the sources above and to a chinese sports site, which shows some pictures
And yet another news site, which has an interesting picture, which makes me famous, and which has an even prettier crosstable

The Ingo-Ratings in the crosstables below are taken from the official WXC Rating Results provided by Siegfried Huber
The most recent change to this page has been made on 2005-08-15 18:20 CEST by Andreas Klein, who has to be blamed for all errors and anything else which is not up to your expectation
