Here's a sample makruk game between two amateurs.
Since I am a total novice at makruk, I'm not providing any annotation (except at the point later in the game when a huge error is made). But if anyone else wants to comment, feel free.
Because my time is limited, I am listing this game a few moves per day. So, if you are interested in following, please track this forum.
(I am using pure algebraic notation.)
