Who was Paul Magriel? If you’re not a backgammon player the name may not ring a bell at all but if you are passionate about the game you should definitely know that he is the father of the modern backgammon. He started to analyse the game with a profound mathematical approach disclosing the hidden secrets of it and destroying the false myths about certain strategic approaches proving they were wrong.
The author of this documentary made an exceptional job and a really nice tribute to the recently deceased Paul Magriel.
