Match Report for Oliver Squire (Europe)

Oliver Squire

I started playing some fun games of backgammon with my dad in the summer of 2016. I wanted to beat him so I looked up winning strategies on the internet. I found that there was no easy strategy to beat anyone (what a surprise!) - the game is much more complex than that. So I started watching matches on YouTube of the world's best players (mostly Mochy) and trying to pick up strategies and work out the reasons behind their moves. I got hooked and never looked back. I loved absorbing content and getting better. My first tournament was the 2017 Blackpool Imperial Cup where I got to the last 16 from 102. My most notable results are Runner up in West Yorshire Open 2020, member of NEBA A team who won UK clubs championship 2020, member of Team UK who got Silver in World team championship 2021 in Trier, Bronze in Venice 2022, winner of Blackpool Imperial Cup 2022, winner of UK Open Super Jackpot 2022, 2nd in 9th Merit Open Super Jackpot 2022.
