PrimeTime Backgammon Magazine 2019 Winter Issue in Print


Our Winter issue is one of our very best. We have great feature articles: a brilliant analysis of the 2018 Michi­gan Masters final (Mamlet vs. O’Laughlin) from top players, theoreticians, and authors Nack Ballard and Paul Weaver; an interview of Tournament of Champions winner Adam Prager (by Karen Davis) along with analysis of his final match against Jaime Obregón (by Marty Storer); and an interview of American star Jason Pack by the Greek VICE News in which Jason gives a fascinating report of his experiences in Monte Carlo last year, and analyzes positions that were part of his great successes there.

Not only that, we have introduced three regular features! The ever-witty, ever-insightful Giant and ABT star Ray Fogerlund kicks off his blog, Ray’s Instant Replays (also available via the USBGF website) in which he relives his experiences on the circuit. Art Benjamin, the USBGF’s genial Mathemagician, gives us his first Math Overboard column with a quick and easy explanation of the power of triangular numbers. And Rich Munitz, chairman of the USBGF Board’s Rules Committee, inaugurates What’s the Ruling?—the USBGF Rules in action, covered lucidly and in depth. Reaching for the cube, is my opponent committed or just thinking? Read the column and find out.

And then, tournament reports. Bill Riles outdoes himself with thorough coverage of the Cyprus Merit Open: a huge, prestigious extravaganza held in a breathtakingly beautiful and desirable venue, organized and run to perfection under the guiding hand of Arda Findikoglu. With USBGF Vice President Tara Mendicino, Bill also reports (Parting Shots) on backgammon-related travels in some lovely corners of England. Check out all the photos!
