ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Jay Bidal is a Canadian expatriate living in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates where he teaches English at Zayed University.

Jay has been playing and studying backgammon seriously for the last several years and has won first place at the 2008 and 2005 Abu Dhabi Ramadan tournaments. He plays mostly online on the FIBS backgammon server as jaysbird. His immediate goal is to become the best player in the Gulf region and the Middle East.

This column is aimed at intermediate players who wish to improve their play by improving their thinking, but hopefully players of all levels will be able to benefit to some degree. One difference this time around is that I would like to solicit matches from you, the readers, as basis for future columns.

If you have an electronic copy of what you feel is an interesting match (not too long, though—10 games in the match would be about the limit), feel free to send it to GammonVillage, and it will be forwarded to me. I can't guarantee that I'll be able to annotate every match we receive, but I'll certainly do my best.

In any case, I hope that you will enjoy and learn from the games published in this column, as I have. If you can, please try to rate the articles to give us feedback, and also feel free to post any comments, queries, additions, or contradictions—any and all are most welcome!

Here is game 6 of Jay's 17th match in "Delving Into Match Play." This article and all subsequent articles in this series will be found in the Annotated Bot Matches section of GammonVillage.
