By the end of today just 32 players will be left in the Main Bracket of the World Championships. 106 players will have been eliminated - their dreams of Backgammon's top trophy cruelly dashed. Unfortunately for me I am one of them.
I don't feel that I played well or was concentrating properly despite my pre-match determination to do both. I have come back to our apartment building to start to put the match through XG and see where I should have done better.
