Chinese chess masters visit Cambridge

20 September 2007
Three of the world's leading players of Xiangqi – the ancient Chinese mind-game sometimes known as “Chinese chess” – will visit the University of Cambridge today as part of a tour of the UK.
Xu Yinchaun, Wang Yang and Zhang Guofeng, who are all Xiangqi grand masters, will be treated to a punting tour on the River Cam and tea at a Cambridge college – Trinity Hall – during a break from a week-long tour promoting the ancient strategy game. Their guided visit will be given by fluent mandarin speakers currently living and working at the University.
