Ten Games of DangHu

    Keywords: Culture & History

The Ten Games of DangHu (當湖十局) are a collection of ten games played by Fan Xiping and Shi Ding'an during the Qing Dynasty (circa 1739) while employed to teach the two sons of the Zhang family of Zhejiang Province. DangHu (or TangHu or PingHu) is a former name of the province. Eight of the games are considered to be masterpieces. Each player won five of the ten. Chen Zude has written a detailed commentary on each of the games. The games begin with 4 stones (2 white and 2 black) placed on the star points of the four corners. (Our method of starting with an empty board is a relatively recent innovation.) John Fairbairn has written an [ext] article (dead link) about these two players.
