The NEBC is a club for playing backgammon, and encourages players of all abilities to come and check us out. Newcomers to backgammon and tournament play are especially welcome, and are always given a cornucopia of help when playing at the club.
We meet at the Dockside Restaurant in Malden, MA
located at 229 Centre Street (Route 60).
Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to ensure a place in the draw. Also, bring your own board. But if you don't have one, no problem, we'll have extras.
Please liberally order food and drink, so that we remain valued patrons of the Dockside. Your entry fee includes a free menu item (up to $5), or a $5 discount off of your total food and drink bill. Please tell the server you are with the club (we run one tab), and settle up with the tournament director before leaving.
Congratulations to Albert Steg, the 2014-2015 NEBC Champion!
The consolation finals, played late in the evening, featured Ahmet Bolat, a new player this year (but no stranger to kicking butt), beating Tony Wuersch.
David Bowen, after losing his first match in the main, went on to win 5 straight in the consolation round to take first place. His final victim was Albert Steg.
