I've heard of this game. We have to give it a shot. Maybe there is an equivalent for Lichess out there.
On the other hand, I remember I read a chess news a long time ago about Kasparov facing a strong player of an alternative chess (maybe it was this, Xiangqi) and Kasparov was able to beat the guy in that game too!! even though the guys was a professional player. I hope I'm remembering it well, I was a bit lazy to look up again, so don't take my word for it :P
Thus there is an extensive literary fund of especially opening and endgame literature about this game, which even surpasses that of chess!Wow. To me it's very difficult to believe this since chess is newer, but far more popular. I need to learn more about this. Is it from wikipedia where you heard this?
