Stick reports on the 2010 World Backgammon Association (WBA) Portuguese Backgammon Open, held from June 23 through June 27, 2010 in Estoril, Portugal.
Veni, vidi, vici. Well, almost anyway. I had good results at this past weekend's Portuguese tournament held in Estoril just outside of Lisbon which makes writing about the tournament more of a joy and less of a pain. (I'm hoping for a pain free Monte Carlo report in a couple of weeks for GammonVillage too.) The first 24 hours of this European vacation started out in a horrible manner for me. I was afraid it was a sign of things to come but after arriving in Estoril and getting a nap I thought perhaps the sounds of the waves hitting the shore could wash away the last 24 hours. It worked so well I continued down that path day after day, beach after beach.
