    Wow 50,000 to the winner!
    I played the 1985 British Championship of backgammon at the Isle of Man and won. The First Prize was 10,000 and a nice trophy. But then the prizes came solely from entry fees.The money was converted to $20,000 Cdn. Also cleaned out the casino at blackjack - at least they had to pay me with a large wad of 5 pound notes.
    One regret I didn't know one of my favourite authors George MacDonald Fraser, was living there in Douglas. I would have visited him there had I known. He's died since then. He's famous for his Flashman series where the British army officer fights in every war between 1840 and 1880 Afghanistan, Crimea the Little Big Horn and survives somehow.

    Can't wait to see how long Aman's beard is by then.
