I only watched fully the session by which you jumped up from 116-49 to 116-2097 and partially some of your other sessions. Your style is the one that drives all games to backgames. This is one of the many strategies in backgammon, as for example is the priming game, the blitzing game etc. However each one should be used accordingly while pushing your game with any single strategy is wrong. Backgames are usually the last resort option.

I noticed you have your own feeling when the position of your backgame is suitable for you to eventually win and in that case you raise the stakes to the maximum. You either drop all other games or play them to completion at low stakes.

You ask if your strategy is correct. The answer is very simple. No!
The reason is again very simple. You bet a backgame at maximum stakes (did you set the max to 2048?) while your chances of winning -at your desired position-are only 40% (Usually single wins). You run the risk of losing 60% and almost all of those loses will be gammons.

My best advice to you is this:DON'T try this in the real world!!

You said that currently you are at 8000 and the bot is down to only 5000.

There are two possibilities for that
Either a)You got lucky in those 3-4 occasions that you managed to drive the game to your desired position with high stakes
or b)You are correctly exploiting most bots' weaknesses in backgames. If this is the case then you are right to talk about a paradox.
For your information there is actually one person at Fibs who does exactly the same thing, he exploits the bots weaknesses in backgames, and uses it to boost up his rating to quite high levels.

As part of my research about Backgammon and about WebGL, I made myself a trainer to improve my pip counting skills.
Because I learned a lot by playing in the FIBS community, I'd like to share it with you. It's free, without advertising and
should work with all current browsers.

Have fun, any comments or improvements are welcome.

The real question here is, "Would you contract to play 220 games against XG for money?" You wouldn't of course, but if you would, the line of prospective backers for XG would reach around the block!

dorbel you said my match was not a long run match at first time, i gave you another match with long play, now you are speaking about another aspect, i should say yes that was not a real money match but how can i play a very long match with xg ? unlimited match was the option. i didnt understand what do you want to say with the "the line of prospective backers for XG would reach around the block!" plz use simple words Smile
i should say i reached to the 8000 score now! xg is 5000! does anyone want to learn my style? haha

This site is useful for FIBs information...http://www.fibs.com/

Follow the instructions there on 'getting started'

Quote
First time connecting
Username and password

All players need a username (nick) and password to play. The name must be 3-20 letters only (no numbers) and underscore (_) is the only punctuation allowed, also remember that it is case-sensitive ('A' and 'a' are different).

Please, please, please do not forget your password. There is currently no way for the FIBS administrators to retrieve this information. If you forget your password then you must start again under a new username.

Follow the help section of your interface for specifics on registering a new user account with your software.


The site does need some updating..particularly about account verification, but once you log in to fibs, you will be sent a message explaining all the changes. Please read it..copy and paste it to a document if needed, so you can remember what to do.

So..you have Javafibs...if you open the top menu by clicking on 'javafibs', very top line, extreme left..you will see the box attached..complete the fields as directed - following the rules above. Once registered, then log in, using the username and password you have created.

Then follow the instructions from MissManners...it will take a few hours to get verified, but then you are good to go. Use the time you are waiting to read up on how to avoid droppers and saved games.  Wink

In the long run means lengthy experience.  If you were so smart, you would know that punctuation belongs at the end of a sentence without a space in between.   Wink  Please forgive me, you have just exhibited one of my pet peeves.   Smiley

I missed that tiger line.  It's usually easier there.......no waiting.  You musta done something wrong.

socksey



I'm wondering ... I don't see this person mentioning that they are logging in to FIBS as "guest".  Isn't that how you start?  Or maybe things have changed.
