I have two distinct lives. One in the trenches of low-budget film and television, the other in professional gambling. Because of the feast-or-famine nature of show business I need a reliable income... gambling. So here you will read about both worlds. Enjoy!

Backgammon Million


Back in 2007 there was a million dollar tournament held at the Atlantis Casino in the Bahamas.  It was a big deal, and it is happening again.  This time the tournament will be held at the Playboy club in London.  The dates are November 25 through November 29, 2012.  There will be a bracket of 128 for the main event, and a high roller event with a bracket of 32.  They expect the total prize pool to be $1.7 million, and the tournament will be televised.  I'm not sure how that is going to work since watching people play backgammon doesn't seem like the most dramatic TV, but who knows? London is one of my favorite cities so this just may bring me out of backgammon retirement.
