2020 Queensland Backgammon Championships Results

Congratulations to Morteza Ghanei, winner of the Queensland Open from
Adrian Pitt. Tipsy Pig stars Craig Duffy and Rhys Osborne were the semi
finalists. A terrific performance by Morteza to best a field of 32 in
his first major tournament.

The 2020 Australian Speedgammon champion is Steve Roberts who somehow
managed to turn the DMP final game against Simon Woodhead. Which was ok
actually, because sometimes the dice gods do play nice with the dice…

The Queensland Masters title was taken from 2019 champ Michelle Taubman
by Simon Woodhead who could do no wrong against Craig Duffy, who, like
Morteza was playing in his first major tournament final.

Another first time winner was Chris Muir, winner of the Sunday
Tournament from Sasha Senica.

Thanks to all who came, and all who helped, especially Barbara Salomon
and Sharne Dyett for running the desk so efficiently, the Surfers
Paradise Surf Life Saving Club for accommodating us and a special
mention for the Newcastle contingent who braved the border crossing only
to return home empty handed! How often does that happen? A clean sweep
for the Tipsy Pig club here on the Gold Coast. Nice 🙂. Pics on FB:
