Pure Strategy

Pure Strategy
"Backgammon – Pure Strategy" goes deeper into understanding the theory of the game, than any other book before it. This is not a beginners book. This is the book to take your game from intermediate or advanced, into the expert or world class level. The book explains how the backgammon AI algorithms (artificial intelligence) work, and how we as humans can get inspired from them. With this inspiration, the book presents a very strong framework for understanding the dynamics and strategy of the game: a human neural net philosophy. But instead of using brute force calculation power as a computer does, we use pattern recognition and conceptual thinking. The second part of the book consists of 129 quiz positions, where the ideas and principles of the first part are put into practice. The reader is encouraged to make an effort to find the best move and understand what’s going on in the position. Each position has an in-depth analysis when you turn the page.
