The 2nd Roll: Make the Right Move Every Time, Backgammon Ebook

Carin Snell

The says not for the beginner. I was not understanding the concepts upon initial reading. Once I read it a few times with my board next to me the lightbulb turned on! I have already seen a slight difference in my game. Very exciting! Thank you.

Backgammon ebook - The 2nd Roll


I got exactly what was promised. A clear structured ebook in an understandable language. Valuable information which helps me to develop my game beyond the second roll. Definitely worth the money.

a superb book. only for the experienced player who already has learned from Robertie's books and other classic BG books. Fnally I get answers to my questions in the early game. should I tempo hit on the one point ? do I split 24/22, or is it too dangerous? Do I break an asset and hit to deprive my opponent of half a roll? sometimes the decision is very close, sometimes the wrong choice is a blunder. Do not be put off by the shortness of the book. Every page is full of the answers and explanations that I need to make decisions in the early game. Inexpensive and worth it. This little PDF is a polished gem that has altered and improved my approach to the early game. Get it now and enjoy knowing why you are making the right moves. ps I have no involvement with the author of this book or with the selling process. I just really really like the book.
