Backgammon for Serious Players

$20.00

Bill Robertie

How do the top players create positions where they can outplay their opponents? They can’t simply drift with the dice into simple positions that anyone can play well. Instead, they have to spot their opportunities for creating complex play which at the same time keep other options open. Using examples from recent master games, Bill Robertie shows the secrets behind creating and winning the sort of complex, double-edged games that are the heart of modern backgammon. The book contains plenty of advice on handling double-anchor holding games, back games, and games where both sides are simultaneously priming their opponent while keeping backgame options alive. You’ll learn how and when to recirculate checkers, the strengths and weaknesses of the outside prime, and proper technique after hitting a late shot. If you have a basic understanding of backgammon but want to see how the masters weave their magic, this book will help you take your game to the next level.
