With Backgammon Player’s-Jess Danielsen

I was born in 1974 in Denmark, and I started playing online backgammon in 1998. I heard about the cafe tournaments in Copenhagen, I attended, and I was completely hooked. When I had kids I had a 4.5-year break from the game, but I returned in 2011 eager to retain knowledge. During my break, DBgF had introduced a norm system with titles like chess, and that just motivated me even more. Over the years I have won a few Danish tournaments, but my best live result is 2nd place in 2015 in the Elite division of the Danish team tournament. I play for the Danish online national team and have done for the past few years. I won the EBIF European Cup 2016 and got 3rd in the EBIF Champions Cup 2017. Online my nick is “erroneous”. I want to thank BMAB for making this possible, and my team Casino Copenhagen Backgammon for endless inspiration, and last but not least I want to thank my wife and kids for their support, and for coping with me when I talk a bit too much about backgammon :). I still have so much more to learn about this game, so the study continues.
