|Rezensionen||"Universally acknowledged as a classic and yet still underrated, Robertie's work organizes and explicates more high-level backgammon concepts than have ever appeared together, before or since. Even now, nearly a decade into the computer era, no other book is like it. In particular, no one to this day has been remotely so ambitious in the analysis of cube actions. In an era when the prevailing wisdom was that hand rollouts of cube actions were useless because of the many thousands of trials one would need to produce a reliable result, Robertie took a different perspective: he happily rolled out interresting positions in 108 game sets, fully understanding that many of his conclusions would be inaccurate, and fully expecting to become a much stronger player for the experience." – Jeremy Bagai, in Classic Backgammon Revisited, March 2001|
