2020 SPRINGFIELD SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP CHAMPION

With imperturbable board presence, in spite of being given VERY ordinary dice by the Backgammon God, Jim executed flawlessly in relegating his opponents to backgammon obscurity on a beautiful Saturday in the Land of Lincoln. Superior checker-play, coupled with superb cube-play enabled Jim to win the prestigious Springfield Series Championship; a tournament played by many, but won by few. Congratulations, Jim.

Your victory was well-earned. St. Louis Gateway Backgammon Club.
