March Women’s Monthly Tournament

Marcela Pelagatti Sample 3

When Marcela Pelagatti won the March Women’s Monthly tournament, Mario Savan wrote:

Marcela is a dear cousin. I traveled to Buenos Aires 5 yrs ago. I had not seen her since we were children. Near the end of my trip, just lounging around in the backyard on a warm afternoon, I noticed Marcela intensely focused on her phone. I asked if she was playing a game. She said, “yes, Backgammon..do you know the game?”……

She was a casual beginner who had just started playing on a phone app. The last couple of days in Buenos Aires before departing we spent some time playing and reviewing basic strategies. I had her join the USBGF as well.

She is so thrilled about her victory. I could not be happier for her.

Congratulations to Marcela for her win and thanks to Mario and all who give encouragement to novice players!
