The Mao is worth two pawns, the Elephant worth about one ( remember, Alfil is one and a half, and the elephant can' t cross the river and can't jump, so), the Guards maybe one and a quarter ( the ferz is one and a half, and the Guard is confined), the Cannon worth maybe four, and each pawn probably a quarter. So (2+1+1.25+4+5)x2+(0.75x5)=26.5+3.75= 30.25. But (5+3+3+9)x2+8=48!!  So Xiangqi loses easily. Maybe yang qi against chess?
