Our biggest night last Wednesday

23 May

Sydney Backgammoners’ biggest night so  far in our new home.


13 Players in total battled over the boards in two groups of 4 playing 7-point matches, and one group of 5 playing 6-pointers.


GiancarloYannoulis triumphed (for the 2nd week in a row) in the “Hearts” group, with David Reitzin coming in 2nd.

John Symon, rested and refreshed after an extensive Queensland sojourn, scooped top honours in the “Diamonds” group, with Carol Wakelin picking up 2nd.

Arthur Ramer was the only player in the “Spades” group of 5 to have 3 wins, so top spot was his and Eva Bitel pocketed 2nd prize.

Thanks to all for coming – the new ladder is in the "Ladder" tab – see you  next week when we will roll the dice again!!
