Backgammon | 10.05.2019
May 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+7
Backgammon at the British Club
This Friday, May 10th, Julian (Jules) Minwalla is passing through Bangkok on his way back home to England after playing in the Japan Open Tournament in Tokyo Japan this past weekend. Jules has won numerous UK tournaments, most notably the British Open, and latterly has been having considerable success in international tournaments around the world, incl. a 3rd place finish at this year’s 195-Player field in the Montenegro Grand Prix tournament.
We are delighted he has agreed to attend and support our opening night of Backgammon at the Club.
The night will begin with a brief introduction to Backgammon by Jules. This will be followed by one match against a BCB Member, in which Jules will comment on the options each throw of the dice provides for both players – a kind of live demonstration of the Rules and Strategy of the game. After that there will be 5 Boards available for general play. Depending on the turnout, we can play “consulting doubles”, in which a beginner is paired with a more experienced player to learn “on the job”. So a fun event is assured for all levels of player.
Going forward, Backgammon Boards will be available in the Club’s bar areas, and Members are welcome to check a set out at their leisure. And of course, with sufficient interest, the Club will consider establishing a new Section to add Backgammon to the range of activities we offer.
