In Thai, go is apparently called หมากล้อม (possibly pronounced mahklom, and possibly meaning "Betel-nut besieging", with reference to the South-East Asian custom of chewing as a stimulant the fruit of an Areca palm after it is mixed with slaked lime and a Betel leaf has been wrapped around its circumference). See also MakLom.
Is go widely played and known in Thailand? How does its popularity compare to other games? Are there go parlours in Phuket, Chiang Mai, etc?
