6th Backgammon Proficiency Test has started!

The season of the 5th “Backgammon Proficiency Test” ended at the Nordic Open 2016 last April, a brand-new season of the 6th test has just started at the JBL Ouisen Tournament early in May.

Our proficiency test, which renews every May, started from May 2011. It is gradually known worldwide as a “world standard” backgammon test for the past five years.

We have more than 100 testees every year, and we had 114 players in the past year. This year we step up our efforts to have even more testees.

On Thursday, 5th May, our 6th test was held during the third day of the JBL Ouisen Tournament 2016. Fifteen players took it, and a special room for our test became practically full.

We would like to express our gratitude to all of the testees. They made us get off to a hot start!

The results of the first round at the Ouisen Tournament 2016, is as follows.
