Mike Corbett Riffs on BG: Women of Backgammon
Mike Corbett lends his vast backgammon experience and will provide an entertaining session!
Playing backgammon requires one to occasionally consider counterintuitive options. That’s not a problem, it’s a defining characteristic of any great game. A successful analysis may bridge a gap that was invisible to you before that moment, making that act a triumph greater than merely finding the right play.
Mike will show us positions that will challenge our ability to rely on habit to produce a game plan or to trust a nimble imagination to find alternatives. Sometimes such items hide in plain sight.
Women are encouraged to attend the live session. To receive the video conference link, sign up to the Women of Backgammon email list. A recording will be posted on the Women of Backgammon YouTube playlist for all to enjoy.
Mike Corbett has spent his fortunate life in the company of stimulating people in extraordinary situations. Along with Laughter of the Damned (a satirical sendup of heaven and hell) and Mr. Nachron’s List (a blend of romance, history and science fiction), he has written tactical books on poker and backgammon. Corbett is fascinated by the wavering border between reality and fantasy, and he is a master of the transition from observation to interpretation.
His book on backgammon is called Backgammon Problems. His website is mikecorbettbooks.com
