As some of you who know me are aware… I play backgammon and chess quite a bit. I was better at backgammon two or three years ago then I am currently. I have won a few thousand playing live and won copies of Snowie 4 … Continue reading 10,000 hour rule. Zare half crossover pip count method
Updates, updates, updates.
Drone stuff mostly.
No map today.. but one of the best infographics I have ever seen.
Bonus infographic as I totally love the way they do this..
Papal Conclave infographic.
Last thing for today possibly. My writing for cryptography is actually almost done.. will be posted in the next 48 hours.
This short infographic video is devastating.. it shows the wealth inequality of the United States. I knew that 1% made more than the lowest 40% combined. I knew that 1% basically controls every aspect of life as we know it and there is absoultly nothing that can be done to change it outside of Civil War/Revolution.
Posting a double bonus long form article I found to be incredibly interesting. Physics related/Higgs particle.
Finally for my Backgammon friends I thought this was one of the better articles I have seen written about strategy. All credit goes to the writer.. Mochy
This is similar to the other method I posted with cross overs. It seems to be at first glance much faster than the other fast method I posted. Obviously being able to figure out Pip counts in live over the board matches is critical if you want to ever get to advanced or expert or world class level. I will study it some more and practice with it as well.
Again all credit goes to Phil Simborg and Robert Urquhart.
Here are a couple more links to a couple backgammon sites that provide a ton of information as well as being very useful.
The first link Chicago Point does a very good job of keeping track of tournaments around the world as well as articles about strategy etc.
The second is a link to Kit Woolsey and his site Gammon U. Very good articles on strategy as well as having one of the more famous online match of the day. Kit moves then the community votes on the proper move and or cube decision.
Always wanted to use this for something and now is my big chance.. top sites in google search for backgammon.
Various very useful articles for people who enjoy the game and wish to learn more.
Found this site to be very very valuable to look at other players and situations they have found and how they responded.
