Marty Storer hit his stride in the backgammon world in 2015, finishing 7th in the ABT reflecting his win of the Michigan Summer Championships and the USBGF National Championship East, accumulating a 17-1 win-loss record in those two events and a PR of 3.3 in recorded, streamed matches. For this performance, he earned the title of BMAB Grandmaster. He won the inaugural American Backgammon Tour in 1993, helped by his victory in the star-studded Boston Open. His two-volume book Backgammon Praxis published in 2005 by Fortuitous Press received rave reviews, as did his 2011 book What’s Your Game Plan? Backgammon Strategy in the Middle Game, co-authored with the intrepid, twotime U.S. Open winner Mary Hickey. He is the Feature Editor for Annotated Matches for PrimeTime Backgammon, and regularly contributes to articles and match analysis in Gammon Village and other publications. He lives in a white-picket-fenced New Hampshire house with his wife Nona, their three children, three pet mammals, and several pet bots. He will serve as Chair of the USBGF Editorial Advisory Board.
