Despite less than stellar results the seven Madison regulars (counting our semi permanent visitor Alex) enjoyed their trip to the Central States Invitational held last weekend in Chicago. Attending a live tournament is a great way to be involved in backgammon, and to get to rub elbows with some of the best players in the world. If you are interested in attending a live event Bill Minser has brochures for many of the upcoming tournaments at all of the club meetings. You can also find a complete list of upcoming live tournaments at http://www.chicagopoint.com/calendar.html. And if you want to try an ABT tournament without the need to travel don’t forget that Madison host a tournament over Labor Day weekend. We would love to have everyone that considers Madison their club to enter that event.
