    Résumé :“I’m a damn good money player, but I just don’t seem to catch a break in tournament play.” Kit Woolsey

    Does this sound like you? It might not be bad luck — tournament play requires very different skills from money play. Up to now there’s been no single source for learning the special features of backgammon tournament play that make it so different from normal heads-up or chouette. Now that’s changed. In How to Play Tournament Backgammon, world-class player and tournament theoretician Kit Woolsey covers everything you need to know to be a successful tournament player. Here’s a partial list of topics: Checker Strategy in the Crawford Game — Post Crawford Play — The New Match Equity Table and How to Learn It — Janowski’s Formula — The Doubling Window — Using Gain-Loss Tables — Cube Leverage in Gammonish Positions — and a lot more.

    New Ideas in Backgammon (Kit WOOLSEY)
    New Ideas in Backgammon
    Auteur :Kit WOOLSEY
    Editeur :Gammon Pr
    Année :1996
    Langue(s) :Anglais
    Niveau :Intermédiaire
    Résumé :"Kit Woolsey and Hal Heinrich have assembled a collection of problems that tests the ability of even the best human players, yet provides instructive lessons for everyone from beginner to expert. All the positions in the book are taken from actual tournament matches in which a top expert made an incorrect choice. Only those problems which were able to stump most on a panel of eight experts were included in the book. In each case, the correct play has been verified by an elaborate series of computer analyses using the neural net Jellyfish.
    The authors have drawn on their vast experience to provide you with the theoretical framework behind the often counter-intuitive plays. It's fair to say that New Ideas in Backgammon stretches our understanding of the game more than any other book in recent years."—Kate McCollough, October 1996
