Comments to eBook Backgammon For Winners, 3rd Edition

I learned to play backgammon in college. Then, 25 years later, I started playing again, online. I stunk. I really, really stunk. I was so bad that I decided to either learn to play the game well, or get out of Dodge. I picked up this little book, and my game began to turn around. Robertie writes clearly, and for beginners.

If you want to play better backgammon, here's my formula: Read this book. At the same time, download and install the gnubg program. It's free, and it's the best. Use the "hint" mode in gnubg, and try to learn why it's recommending all those bizarre moves. Compare those moves to what Robertie says. Keep at it, then keep at it some more. Your backgammon will get better, I promise.

I have two other Robertie books: Backgammon for Serious Players, and 501 Essential Backgammon Problems. I recommend them both, but it's Winners that got me started. Thanks, Bill!

I bought several of these to give to newcomers when they join (or at least show interest) in my Milwaukee Backgammon Club. I've found it to be the most accessible book for novices and lower-level intermediate players who want to up their game. Authored by a two-time U.S. champion.

Solid theory. Robertie's strategy is so aggressive it makes me nervous, but he is the best there is. My only regret is that this book goes by quickly. I wanted more! Great material.
Corgustari
Nothing really new. Difficult reading -quotation. Interesting, though.
Arashilkis
A fine book by an author who obviously knows the game. Has improved my game, but can't help the role of the dice. My wife beats me all the time. But after this book, not by as much.

GREAT BOOK AND RECEIVED PROMPTLY

The book contains chapters on the basic rules and opening moves, and then three sample games. The chapter on opening moves is incomplete - only 15 of the 21 possible rolls are covered. (All of the "doubles" rolls are missing - apparently by mistake, as the text at the end of the chapter says "Those are all the rolls you can start the game with...".) There is no use of mathematical probabilities - the strategic advice is all given by subjective evaluation. The book suffers by comparison to the classic "The Backgammon Book", by Jacoby and Crawford, which, unfortunately, seems hard to get now.
This book is as good as any for the raw beginner. The great Robertie explains the rules of the game, basic objectives, and opening moves, and then takes you through three sample games. That's about it, and if you're an experienced player you won't learn anything from it you don't know already. On the plus side, Robertie's conversational style is more enjoyable than some of the older beginner books, and he tries to explain things that aren't obvious to the novice (for example, a 5-5 looks like a great roll here, here's why it's not). All in all, a short user-friendly guide for the novice.
