The answer is of course easy. Get the core of the game right - and your game will be SOLID.

Become a Guru of the Holding Game

His style of writing and teaching makes it feel almost effortless to become a true expert, or “Guru” if you like, of the holding game!

Backgammon Grandmaster and Backgammon Galaxy CEO Marc Olsen:

”I thought I could not improve in this part of my game. But Jacob’s book added some nuances and great reference positions to my game. In my opinion, every player no matter their level, should read this book, and will easily add a lot of new knowledge and skills.”
