Mary Hickey reports on the 2013 ABT Ohio State Backgammon Championships held in Cleveland, Ohio on March 22 through March 24, 2013.

Greg Merriman is no doubt the kind of "people" that Cleveland tournament director Joe Miller has in mind when he calls his ABT event "The People Friendly Tournament!" What he really means, of course, is that there will be less emphasis on the new "tech" at his tournament, including less use of clocks and cameras. But tech found its way even to this bastion of old-style backgammon: many matches were recorded and/or streamed anyway, with Ben Friesen in charge of the work and the arrangements.

You are very observant, Tim! Maybe he's thinking, "I just know you're going to play the wrong 6", or something to that effect.

Glad you enjoyed the report, and I (and many other players, too) would love for you to come to a tournament someday.
