Backgammon Nickname: I don't have one . . . although Paul Money did attach the sobriquet, RAMBO to me - it is a reference to BIBA (British Isles Backgammon Association, of which I am the founder and director) and stands for, Really All Michael's Backgammon Organization! I thought this was really neat.

If I could change anything in the world, I would... Abolish reality TV shows.


If I could change anything in the Backgammon world, I would... Compile a universal set of rules that all would play to.


Additional comments: I am too shy to say much else!
