4th Backgammon Proficiency Test in UK Open 2014

On Friday, 19th September, the 4th Backgammon Proficiency Test was presented by #1 Giant of Backgammon Masayuki “Mochy” Mochizuki during the UK Backgammon Open 2014, at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
Many attenders also took part in his in-depth seminar reviewing all the answers to this test on the next day.

During the event, 21 players finished our test. They might have a hard time with 50 challenging problems because most of them were first-time attenders.
The result is that Tim Line did great and he overachieved the Falafel’s existing record substantially. Chris Bray, Brian Lever and Gaz Owen also got a good grade with a score of 30 and above.

The result is as follows.
