Positional Play by Bill Robertie. Thanks for these recommendations. Originally Posted by Robertie What is a completist? But the general method of analysis is more or less the same now as it was then. Has the theory changed since Advanced Backgammon came out?

Steve added it Jun 14, It doesn’t really decrease the value of the book though, just don’t take all advice as gospel. Lots of interesting positions and good for improving your cube handling.
Don’t get me wrong, I think Advanced Backgammon is very good; it’s just targeted for a more advanced player. There were a lot of middle-game checker plays where it was clear that Snowie was making the right play because rollouts consistently backed Snowie up but the advaned and the connection between the different plays wasn’t obvious.
In particular, no one to this day has been remotely so ambitious in the analysis of cube actions. His first book, Lee Genud vs Joe Dwek, an account of the World Championship Match, has been called by many the best backgammon match book ever written.
Reno Bill Robertie Please, be aware I have no financial stake in Robertie’s work. It aims to raise the reader’s game to expert level in a series of problems about half chequer play and half cube decisions that cover positional topics such as the opening and the five point, and technical topics such as holding games and bearing off.
I have just finished reading both volumes of Advanced Backgammon by Bill Robertie.
I’ll never know, I guess, but I can’t imagine having advxnced read it. Books by Bill Robertie. Today I wouldn’t consider myself a dog to anyone in the world; Nack, Sander, whomever.
Many thanks, and kudos to Bill.
Among these, Robertie’s work jumps immediately to the top echelon. Bill Robertie is considered one of the world’s top backgammon players and one of the game’s foremost theoreticians. Farshid Farbassi marked it as to-read Apr 26, Prime Games, and Back Games. Robertie’s analysis is quite deep and extensive, requiring much time to think about.
I have read Magriel’s Backgammon several times and understood the concepts and my game improved much.
Open Preview See a Problem? Robertie’s commentary appears to be identical to the first edition. No trivia or quizzes yet.
