Chris Bray is backgammon columnist for The Independant, gives seminars on the game, was ranked in the top five in the UK and regularly competes in the World Championships. In 'Backgammon To Win - Play Like A Pro Both Online And Off' he introduces beginners and those who haven't played for years to the knowledge and reasoning needed to play the game well. Would prove useful to anyone looking to get a little more serious too.
While backgammon can be lost or won on the throw of the dice, tactical moves and game plans can help you adapt your play to deal with whatever comes your way. With chapters on opening rolls, mid-game strategies and races and endings, his step-by-step suggestions, sample game illustrations and easy-to-follow text have everything you need to get to grips with the game. The different ways to play backgammon - from tournaments and chouettes to computer and online play - are all covered, as are the secrets of making the doubling cube work in your favour.
