About this title


Dust jacket notes: "In the first and only backgammon guide designed expressly for the serious player, two recognized masters of the game, International World Champion Barclay Cooke and Canadian Champion Rene Orléan , provide an expert analysis of backgammon strategy and tactics as played on the world class level. Through a unique format - a lively, colorful play-by-play study of eight hard-fought duplicate games of the first International Champion Match held in London in October 1973 - Cooke and Orléan demonstrate the techniques, artistry, and skills of advanced backgammon while allowing you to match wits with Britishers Phillip Martyn and Joe Dwek versus Americans Barclay Cooke and his son, Walter. By playing along, move by move, with these four world class masters, you are able to grasp the finer points of the game, not through static rules and artificial situations, but through the actual flow and dynamics of backgammon play, both on the board and in the players' minds. Through this give-and-take of play, you not only experience the excitement, drama, and adventure of backgammon as played by experts, but gain valuable insight into the subtle strategies of the game, including: how to strengthen your position on the board; how to minimize the role of luck; and how to make imaginative plays that will create exciting opportunities for you. Nearly 300 'living' diagrams vividly illustrate not only the actual moves made, but possible alternative positions and their relative merits. Throughout, the authors emphasize the critical role of psychological stress in determining game play, showing that even the most seasoned player can crumble under the intense pressure of championship competition."
