About the book:
This is the final (at least for now!) book in the Wind series of backgammon books. The book is an anthology of the final three years of Chris's columns from The Independent newspaper in the United Kingdom plus some other material produced for the United Kingdom Backgammon Federation.

'Backgammon in the Windí is the fifth anthology in the Wind Series and covers Chrisís articles from The Independent newspaper for the years from 2013-2016.

The game of backgammon continues to evolve and the last twenty years have seen a period of rapid development in the game. This is largely because of the advent of backgammon computer programs JellyFish, Snowie and, most recently, eXtreme Gammon. Consequently the modern expert player is light years ahead of his 1990s counterpart.

The material in this book covers not only the development of backgammon theory but also looks at the history of the game including some of its more famous and colourful players. Backgammon has never been short of interesting characters ranging from Emperor Nero to Lord Lucan.

The timeless characters that make up Chrisís menagerie continue to paint a vibrant picture of life in the high stakes chouette. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson are on hand to lend instruction and Jeeves and Wooster provide some light-hearted moments.

Chris's books are targeted at a broad range of players and everyone from casual player to the expert will improve their game by studying the diverse positions in this book.
