The game is very easy to fall into the stalemate. I suspect the variant is not real Cambodian Chess, because it lacks playable strategic and no Cambodia people plays or mentions it. I think the vaiant was invented by one persion who both liked Chinese Chess and Thai Chess. He wanted to combine these chess, so invented this variant. If the elephant jumpes like Ailfi(2,2 jumper) and also steps like the elephant of Thai Chess, the variant may be somewhat playable.
