On April 10th 2010, Neil Kazaross and I began the finals of the Dubrovnik Open Winter Backgammon Tournament. This was a double elimination event, and since I had not lost yet, Neil would have to beat me twice to earn the title.

In Dubrovnik Finals 1, we have a position where Neil is down 47 pips in the race but has an anchor on the 20 point. He has a three point board, with prospects to make a four or five prime in short order. My major liability at this time is the stripped 14 point I must clear before he lengthens his prime too much more. One third of my rolls leave a direct shot and others such as 5-1 eliminate some of my landing spots.
