On Sunday, May 28th, the fourth day of the 37th Chicago Open Backgammon Tournament, Michihito “Michy” Kageyama (Giants #2) presented the newest version of our “Backgammon Proficiency Test”. He also offered a comprehensive review to the participants on the following day.
Since its establishment in May 2011, our proficiency test has attracted more and more attention all over the world. That was the fourth consecutive time we carried it out there. The previous articles are here:
