The first round of the backgammon tournament took place on September 6th. Twelve participants threw their hat in the ring with a fair number of supporters cheering for them. The tough competition revealed the incredible skills of our participants, who generously shared backgammon playing tips and tricks with each other. The finalists emerged after the first round. We have Daniel, Kolya Tevosyan, Mark Krikorian, and Nicholas Michalopoulos that will put their skills into the test again for the bid to win the title of the Master of Backgammon. The final will take place on September 19th at 7:30 PM. All participants are welcome to join either to cheer our finalists or play another set of backgammon game for a fun.
