Whenever I go to a backgammon tournament I bring my digital camera to record positions of interest. I often end up with dozens even over 100 shots of interesting positions that I save for further study.

Out of the many positions I start with, I'll tend to roll out a much smaller number of positions as either the position is either an easy take, pass, no double…etc i.e. the decision is obviously and easy one.

Of that selection of positions, some are rather mundane bear-off or holding positions which don't meet the cut of curiosities I would like to share with the readers here. I did pare down the 50 or so rollouts to the ten most interesting positions from the Las Vegas Open Backgammon Tournament.
