Paris Master & Open International Backgammon Tournament
(Hotel De Castiglione, Paris, 15th - 20th February) 

Good advertisement by flyers, by internet, by pages in backgammon magazines and by François Tardieu in person resulted in a big masters´ field of 41 players and a championship field of 128 players (incl. rebuys) in Paris. It was the first international tournament in Paris since Hervé Pietraru gave up organizing tournaments in 1994.

François Tardieu organized this big tournament excellently and had good help by Serge Rived, who made pictures and videos of the matches and by five charming girls, whose every day changing clothes (sponsored by Pourquois Pas / Michel Siegel) obviously fitted well and were always worth a look up from the backgammon board.
