#1 Giant of Backgammon Masayuki “Mochy” Mochizuki will be presenting his Backgammon Proficiency Test starting at 6pm on Friday 19th September – the first day of the UK Open Championship, at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
An in-depth seminar reviewing all the answers to this test will follow on Sunday morning, 21st September at 9.45am.
This is a very enjoyable challenge for all players from Intermediate level upwards; not just super-strong world class players. Everyone who is able to get to the Ricoh Arena by 6pm on Friday 19th is strongly encouraged to participate.
Over the past year, 140 players have taken the Proficiency Test, which has been presented at major tournaments all over the world, including the Nordic Open in Copenhagen, and the Texas Backgammon Championships in San Antonio. This latest (4th) version, which was taken by some players at last month’s World Championships in Monte Carlo, was devised by Mochy and Michy and contains 50 high quality and well-balanced questions in multiple choice format.
