I am administrator for several pages and public groups.
 
Those most recent peaks in the charts above are because 
 
I invested $ 526.00 for ads on Facebook to pick up new 
 
players for our programs in Connecticut.  
 
We are unable to establish a backgammon club in Coventry.
 
We have only 3 bg players who live locally.

Our backgammon blog has poor half-life after a post,
as can be seen from the deep valleys between the peaks.

Report on June 10 event in Torrington

1st annual Summer Region Backgammon Tournament at held at Bachi's was a total success. $1,105.00 prize money was awarded. 1st Place Tom Meyer - Southbury, 2nd Place Bill Porter, Terryville, 3rd Place Andy Fazekas, Milford.

So nice to see great success for the backgammon championships held yesterday at Bachi's Ristorante in downtown Torrington.

Special thanks to the Brass City Backgammon Club directors; Sandra and Jim Sisti, Al Cantito, Ed Corey, and Gerhard Roland, who all worked hard to prepare for, and to conduct this event.

The venue was very comfortable and met our every need. The lunch was delicious. 18 players competed. The BCB will schedule another Saturday tournament this fall.

Many chess players, especially those from the Boston area (and beyond) - such as George Mirijanian , Rob Roy, Al Lawrence, Dan Lucas - and many other mutual friends, will remember chess organizer, TD & NM Bill Robertie who has rocked the backgammon world over the years since giving up active chess prior to 1990. A tribute to the inaugural cohort of American Backgammon Hall of Fame honorees in the national federation magazine with USBGF Historian Robert Stoller’s interview of two-time world champion Bill Robertie featured on the cover. "Bill is a gifted and prolific author, publisher, and promoter/director whose books have taught innumerable players both the basics and finer points of the game."

Here's a match problem. With White holding a 2-cube, Black can end the match with a gammon. What's your play?
