On Sunday, March 27th, our 5th Backgammon Proficiency Test was conducted by Masayuki “Mochy” Mochizuki (Giants #1 2015-2016) during the fourth day of Nordic Open 2016, Denmark.
Thirty-two players took time to challenge it, and Mochy gave them the in-depth lecture with review of the answers on the next day.
Their results were totally excellent and eight players scored over 30 points (out of 50).
Zdenek Zizka (Czech) and Thomas Tenland (Sweden) got the highest with 38 points.
For the whole result, they reach first place in terms of the number of right answers.
You won’t believe this, but Zdenek is not yet twenty years old. He is a promising young player and were actually elected to be a member of the team “World” in Nordic Open.
We’re greatly honored for a young talent like he to get interested in our test.
We have one more chance left to conduct our existing test in April.
If a young guy successfully finishes in first place, it would be an incredible news in the world!!
Their scores are as below.
|Rank||Total score||Total errors||Name|
|30||16||5211||P. J. M.|
|Total 32||Ave. 24.7||Ave. 2940|
