Understand Any Position
The Zizka Method teaches you how to handle any situation in backgammon like a world class player.
In the book Grand Master Zdenek Zizka carefully and elegantly teaches you his storytelling approach to backgammon, which is a general method that will transform the way you understand the game.
The game of backgammon has evolved a lot since the invention of computer analysis.
This has given way to many pragmatic rules as humans try to learn from the feedback from the computer. But do you really understand the game if you only use these rules of thumb?
Zdenek Zizka doesn’t shy away from computer analysis, but he uses it in a more old school human approach to the game.
His method forces you to THINK about backgammon again, in a way you might not be used to, which will leave you more curious and excited about the game.
He will ask you to tell the story behind positions, and gives you the building blocks to be able to do so on your own.
Dominate the hardest positions & Lower Your PR
The Zizka Method is especially fruitful for a backgammon player when it comes to the hardest positions. As you know, many situations in the game are easy and we can solve them with no effort.
But the game is interesting, because we encounter difficult and even impossible backgammon puzzles.
These puzzles are what lead to huge blunders and kills your performance rating.
The Zizka storytelling method is amazingly effective in tackling these impossible positions. With practice you will be able to see a drastic improvement in your game and your PR average!

Secrets Revealed: Sokrates and Falafel
Sokrates is one of the worlds most famous philosophers. But do you know he never wrote down any of his teachings? It wasn’t until his pupil Plato published his own works that the knowledge and method of Sokrates was made famous.
A synonymous situation has occurred with Zdenek Zizka and his famous teacher Mike “Falafel” Natanzon. Falafel never published any of his ideas or methods to the world, but his style and method is finally seeing public light through his brilliant pupil Zdenek Zizka.
