As we all know, playing xiangqi requires brains. Some people say that only people with extremely high intelligence can become xiangqi masters. In fact, this is only half true. It is true that it is difficult for a person with a low IQ to become a xiangqi master, but an ordinary person with a slightly higher IQ can become a xiangqi master only if there are strong non-intelligence factors, namely modesty, diligence, perseverance, and perseverance.
As the saying goes, “xiangqi is not a contest of intelligence. If you have enough ability, then you are a master.” Chinese culture is indeed broad and profound. As far as this sentence is concerned, whether it is right or wrong depends on who said it. A virtuous person is right, a shallow person is wrong.
A good opening is half the battle. The quality of the layout often affects the overall game. This requires reading more opening skills and xiangqi game choices of well-known masters, analyzing the changes, reading xiangqi theory books and xiangqi publications, In order to master the opening principles, improve the theoretical level of xiangqi.
In addition to intellectual factors, there are also non-intellectual factors that determine the success or failure of a xiangqi player. Among them, temperament has a greater impact on the success rate of xiangqi players. Psychology divides human temperament into four types: choleric, bloody, mucoid, and depressive.
But there are very few people who are purely a single type, most people are dominated by one type, and the two have a mixture of other types. For example, Hu Ronghua, a successful young man, and Meng Fanrui, the current xiangqi prodigy, can defeat super grandmaster. We have to admit that hard work is inevitable, but in addition to hard work, we must also admit the difference in IQ.
It is said that success is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration, but there is a saying behind it, that it is often the last 1% inspiration that determines success. That inspiration is amazing, and it’s hard to come by. Combining research and observation, xiangqi practice relies on personal research, but it also has limitations and should watch more grandmasters play.
You have to use your brain for every step, guess the best moves for both sides, compare your own ideas with the actual steps of the masters, and learn advanced xiangqi skills from famous players. All masters have their own set of skills. By observing other people’s xiangqi skills, they can understand the strengths of other xiangqi players and develop their own xiangqi skills in an all-round way.
There are differences in judgment between people. Judgment and understanding of the situation, understanding of the formation structure, and IQ have a certain relationship, but in the final analysis, the level of xiangqi skills depends on whether you work hard, as long as you are willing to work hard, It’s not a problem to become a good player, but whether you can break through to become a master depends on your understanding of xiangqi and luck.
With the development of modern xiangqi, the various layouts of chess can no longer be counted. Without certain intelligence, it is really impossible to become a top master. That is, all kinds of layouts must be remembered in the mind, and all possible plans and moves in the middle game must be calculated in the brain. Without good intelligence and memory, it is impossible to do it just by practicing hard.
In short, xiangqi is a diversified game and a comprehensive art. In the early stage of xiangqi, you need to do a good job of basic content. After you master the basic skills of xiangqi, it has little to do with IQ. As long as you study hard, practice hard, and complete relevant courses, your xiangqi level can be improved a lot.
