Justin Nunez vs. Victor Ashkenazi34th Annual Chicago Open Backgammon Tournament
Round 2, 11-point match
Full Match at YouTube
Justin Nunez made an illegal move in his match yesterday against Victor Ashkenazi. In a tournament where the rules required legal moves, neither player noticed the error, and it went uncorrected. Jason inadvertently moved a spare onto his 5pt instead of his 6pt, an error that probably favored Victor. On his next roll, however, Jason rolled 42, and was able to use the illegally placed checker to point on Victors head.
