How to Play Tournament Backgammon


Kit Woolsey

“I’m a damn good money player, but I just don’t seem to catch a break in tournament play.”

Does this sound like you? It might not be bad luck — tournament play requires very different skills from money play. Up to now there’s been no single source for learning the special features of backgammon tournament play that make it so different from normal heads-up or chouette. Now that’s changed. In How to Play Tournament Backgammon, world-class player and tournament theoretician Kit Woolsey covers everything you need to know to be a successful tournament player. Here’s a partial list of topics: Checker Strategy in the Crawford Game — Post Crawford Play — The New Match Equity Table and How to Learn It — Janowski’s Formula — The Doubling Window — Using Gain-Loss Tables — Cube Leverage in Gammonish Positions — and a lot more.

    und wozu musst du die Fahrgäste auf dem Berpnderteniahkplatz rauslassen?? Es gibt Leute die wollen/müssen dort parken.Für Taxis wirds ja wohl irgendeine andere Stehmöglichkeit als den Parkplatz für Behinderte zu geben.
