Play65, the leading backgammon room in the industry, has had success in the past with sending online qualifiers’ winners to compete in live events, as many of them returned with trophies and often with checks. Many of Play65 members have rich experience in playing backgammon live, while many others were recreational online players who have turned avid live backgammon players after winning an online qualifier. “Thanks to Play65, I could go to the Portuguese Open in Estoril, my first big tournament, where I was the Consolation finalist, and later to the Nordic Open in 2010.” Said Denis Etienne, the winner of the Swiss Backgammon Open held recently in Montreux.
