  Remarks 1. The books contain three matches of "Backgammon Giant" Malcolm Davis. Vol. 1 discusses a match from the World Championship 2000 against Ed O'Laughlin. Vol. 2 contains two matches: The final of the Last Chance from Pittsburgh 1997 against Marty Storer (the author of this book) and a match from the 2nd round of the World Championship 2001 against Frank Talbot. The players (Ed O'Laughlin, Frank Talbot und Malcolm Davis) co-comment the matches move-by-move.

2. The match Malcolm Davis vs. Marty Storer (1997) can be downloaded from my Match Archive (uncommented).

  Book Reviews "In closing, I must admit that I just don't have enough time and space to say more good things about 'Backgammon Praxis'. It is the best match analysis book I've ever seen. [..] The quality of play by the four world-class players is quite good, and the games are very instructive. Much of the book may be over the heads of beginners. However, it is a superb book for those intermediates looking to become strong advanced players, and a great tool for experts looking to further improve. [..]
'Backgammon Praxis' receives a grade A from me!!" — Neil Kazaross, Flint Area BackgammonNews, May 2005
