On December 7th, 2005, at 9 P.M. on SKY Channel 226, the world will witness the first ever televised Backgammon event on Pokerzone. On the program, the Fairmont, Monte Carlo championships, which took place in July 2005, with over 500 competitors, will be aired. Online casinos backgammon fans will have the chance to see an actual game on their television sets at home. This is definitely a monumental event in the online casinos world.
Director of Programming, Sam Orams says, 'Backgammon and Poker complement each other perfectly and offer a similarly engrossing experience to the viewer. We're delighted to add to our list of 'world-firsts' with World Championship Backgammon.' Pokerzone will help build up the event and heighten the excitement by featuring a three part series called Ernie's Game on November 16th. Online casinos fans will be able to watch this documentary of the rough life of a U.K. professional backgammon player. A behind the scenes look at the high stakes players as they prepare for the big event will be as exciting to watch as the event itself for online casinos backgammon fans.
Although backgammon is a game which demands extensive skill and experience, it is also known for its outrageously peculiar players. With zany tales of lost bets over game results and the like, online casinos fans will surely be entertained by Pokerzone's program. So for you online casinos backgammon fans - tune in!
