We’re pleased to announce the July-August issue of PrimeTime Backgammon, the bi-monthly electronic magazine of the U.S. Backgammon Federation is now posted. Thanks for your patience and good wishes for our production editor, Gus Contos, who is now home from the hospital and recuperating. I think you’ll find this issue has been worth waiting for.

Take a Quiz prepared by Chuck Bower constructed from positions that arose in a USBGF online match between Ben Friesen, a student at the University of Michigan-Flint, and Ben Cousins, an undergraduate at Clemson, now studying at Georgia Tech. Chuck shows how tweaking the player’s and opponent’s boards just slightly may alter the choice of play.

Other articles you will find of interest include:

Dmitriy Obukhov and Paul Weaver – Opening 64 in a Seven-Point Match;

Steve Sax – Experience Rules at the 2013 L.A. Open;

Player Profiles of Bruce Farquhar: Scottish Sportsman and Jim Stutz: Winner of the USBGF Director’s Cup;

Highlights from the Michigan Summer Backgammon Championships.

This issue of PrimeTime Backgammon, and other analytic articles, are restricted to Premium, Youth, and Founding Sponsor members. Join now to lock-in current membership rates which are slated to change on September 8.

Enjoy this 70-page action-packed, fun-filled issue!
