Mike Corbett’s fascinating book might equally well be entitled “Backgammon Estoterica”. It’s a look at some of the weird and fascinating back alleys of backgammon – positions where broken points, strung-out blots, and a general disregard for safety dominate the mundane ideas of hitting blots and making points. Your backgammon education will always be a little bit incomplete until you’ve wrestled with the curious and paradoxical positions in this book.
