My intent in blogging is to improve my backgammon skill. I killed my prior blog, " Bill Blogs Backgammon," upon deciding the "work to fun ratio" was out of whack. I am back now for a couple reasons. First, enough time has passed to where I am motivated to study again. Also, I have noticed my skill deteriorating as I preferred play over study.
I hope the act of blogging will keep my mind on the game, and force me to balance playing with practice. While I happily share my work here for anyone who is interested, I don't want to place any undue pressure on myself to maintain an active blog. I will write when it suits me.
I expect to write general notes on fundamentals of the game. In the past, topics included opening replies, notes from Bill Robertie's 501 Essentials book, racing formulas, etc. I expect to cover some of the same material here, expecially since I literally destroyed the archive of my previous blog. Additionally, I expect to write about blunders from my own matches.
