BGTV Proficiency Contest in Istanbul Open 2017

On 14th January, the second day of Istanbul Open 2017, our 6th Backgammon Proficiency Test was held as “BGTV Proficiency Contest”.

Arda Fındıkoğlu, the host of the event and the president of WBF Turkey, arranged a special dedicated room for testees. We’re always thankful for the help. :)

A lot of players participated although it decreased a little compared with last year.
Thank you everyone for everything.

The overall score was much higher than last year.
As a result of summing up, David Presser (Israel) got the highest score, followed by Jalil Khalili (Iran). Atilla Malçok and Berkant Bilgi got the top score among the Turks.

I gave trophies as a presenter to the top two at the awards ceremony.
