The game’s premier mind, legendary World Backgammon Champion Paul Magriel, shows beginning and intermediate players how to set up the foundation of success with powerful theory and practical moves that will win games and make you a force at the board. Concepts are carefully explained with illustrations showing important positions before and after moves, with readers learning why chosen moves are superior to others, how they set up the winning endgame, and when and why you should play conservatively or boldly. The essential foundation and essential strategies are covered here—opening rolls, the running game, holding game, doubling strategy, priming game, attacking game, pip counts, basic odds. [This is the first book in Magriel’s backgammon trilogy—with new layout and design—excerpted from Magriel’s monumental work, Backgammon (1976)]
