• Website Plans 2019

    Firstly, A Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to everybody.

    Secondly, my thanks to those of you who have kindly commented on the positions throughout the year. It helps me enormously to see how other people think about and analyse positions so please keep the comments coming.

    In 2019 I will be posting a problem five days a week, Monday to Friday. For the time being there will be no weekend articles, except in exceptional circumstances. This is because I need the time to edit my latest book which is an anthology of the longer articles from the last couple of years. The working title is: "Backgammon - The Final Wind'". I hope to publish it within three months.

    As indicated it will be the last in the long-running "Wind" series. After that I will (hopefully) start work on a middle game book which will be very time consuimg.

      Happy New Year Chris! I'd just like to say that working on the problems you post every day has helped my game enormously. Keep up the good work!

      I'm glad it helps. As Gary Player once famoulsy said: "the more I practice the luckier I become". That is particularly true of backgammon.

These will be posted more or less daily and also tweeted. As I add a new position I will give a commentary for the previous one.
