Dear Mr. Ludwig,
khup khun krap! Thank you very much for your most valuable informations.
Yes, indeed, I am very much interested to get informations about that
great player of Mak Rook, the most venerable monk Khun Maha Por.
The reason: Actually I am working on the project of a reportage on
Thailand and its unique version of chess; that's why I would like to
meet
Khun Maha Por, if possible. Do you have any more informations about him?
Is
it possible to meet him? Besides one most interesting question: Khun Maha
Por is supposed to be the strongest player of Mak Rook, actually; but if
he is not taking part in tournaments - how come that rating? Has he won
duels - against various strong challengers - that have taken place at the
temple, the Wat Pradu? Has he published basic books or articles on Mak
Rook?
I am thankful for any informations about that.

PD. Unfortunately the project of the World Champion of Western Chess
playing against the Champion of Mak Rook has had to be postponed for the
time being, it ha turned out to be impossible to organize sponsoring for
that project.
