8th Proficiency Test – Round 3 @ 43rd World Championship

Masayuki “Mochy” Mochizuki (Giants #1) and Michihito “Michy” Kageyama (Giants #2) presented our 8th “Backgammon Proficiency Test” on Thursday, August 2nd – the third day of the 43rd Backgammon World Championship, Monte Carlo, Monaco.

That was the fifth time our proficiency test was held there, and so it has become a popular event among regular players.

A total of 31 players, including Jorgen Granstedt (Sweden, the three-time World Champion), Marc Olsen (Denmark, #1 in the 7th test), Falafel (USA/Israel, #1 in the 6th test), Zdenek Zizka (Czech, #1 in the 5th test), Matt Cohn-Geier (USA, #1 in the 3rd test), were present at the test.

As a result, Matt Cohn-Geier got an extremely high score of 43/50, and the runners‐up are Jorgen Granstedt and an anonymous player with 40/50. Matt currently stands in first place in terms of both the number of right answers and the total error rate (equity loss) among all of the players.
