Beschreibung / Klappentext:
This book is the first book every aspiring backgammon player should read. After an introductory section in which he gives examples of the four most common types of game (running game, holding game, attacking game and priming game) and some basic doubling cube strategy and maths, Magriel goes on to tackle most of the fundamental points of chequer play in chapters such as "Safe Play vs. Bold Play," "Action Game," "When You Are Forced to Leave Shots" and "The Golden Point" (on making your opponent`s five point). An understanding of these chapters will raise anyone`s game from the "hitting twice is fun, so it must be right" level to knowing what are the issues involved in a position, what sort of game one is trying to play, and how best to bring one`s objectives about. The main criticism of the book must be that it is weak on doubling strategy. This is surely as important as chequer play. There are a couple of chapters on doubling, but a systematic exposition of the subject, in the style of the rest of the book, would have made the book even more valuable than it already is. Sadly, this book is out of print. But whatever your level, do all you can to get a second hand copy or borrow it from a library.
