Current Ladder: Championship Flight
GammonVillage correspondent Stick reports from Day 4 at the 2009 World Championships of Backgammon, being held at the Fairmont Hotel in Monte Carlo, Monaco from July 13 to July 19.
MONTE CARLO, Monaco - Another day in the life yet more of the same. Day 4 brought more disappointment as I lost my consolation match swiftly and turned around later and lost a rough doubles match. The good news for you, the reader, trying to keep up with the ongoings in Monte Carlo is that I lose so quickly I have time to write for GammonVillage. I couldn't imagine winning and having time to keep up with what's going on nevertheless write a daily summary.
