6th Proficiency Test – Round 4 @ 41st World Championship

Masayuki “Mochy” Mochizuki (Giants #1 2015-2016) presented our 6th “Backgammon Proficiency Test” on Thursday, July 28th – the third day of the 41st Backgammon World Championship, Monte Carlo, Monaco.

That was the third year our test had been held there. The previous articles are here:

Twenty-two players took time to challenge it, and Mochy gave them the in-depth lecture with review of the answers on the next day.


The results were really high-level, and Falafel (USA, Giants #4) got the top score with 40 points (out of 50), followed by Steen Gronbech (Denmark, Giants #14). Currently, Falafel stands in first place in terms of the number of right answers among all of the testees.
