The first modern backgammon superstar, Tim Holland won three World Championships and three International Backgammon Championships — more major backgammon championships than anyone else in the history of the game. Tim was also a successful author and renowned teacher. He opened the Park 65 Backgammon Club in New York City in 1978 and introduced many to the glamour of high-stakes backgammon. His three popular books, Beginning Backgammon (1973), Better Backgammon (1974), and Backgammon for People Who Hate to Lose: The Psychology of Playing a Winning Game (1977), helped trigger the backgammon boom of the 1970s.
