New Pipcounting Method Released

Axel Reichert, a software programmer and analytic backgammon player from Munich, has analyzed several pip-counting methods and developed a few of them for a more simple but efficient use during matches.

Especially when under time pressure and while playing with clocks in tournaments, Axel´s work will be very beneficial to any serious backgammon player.
