GammonLife Newsletter

Greetings GammonLife Newsletter Subscribers!

After being away in Costa Rica for more than three years (taking care of personal family affairs) I am back in Canada and starting to add new articles and other material to

I am 
now also a consultant to, a new backgammon server being developed and that is expected to launch in 2011. You can read about the many features the software will have at What I like most about GammonPower is that they will have chouette, online qualifiers to live tournaments and a very low rake. Players will also be able to play money games and matches for micro-limits, as low as 10 cents.

GammonPower will be giving away, to the first 1,000 players that pre-register, a small amount of free cash to play with, as well as entries to free-roll tournaments, so go to and submit your name and email address to be eligible for the free stuff. I hope you will be with me to party on the day GammonPower launches.
