Why Backgammon Networks are good for you?
The year is 2012. Online backgammon has evolved since the beginning of the 21st century when only a few backgammon sites were available. But what does it mean for players like you – the ones that strive to make a profit out of others mistakes?
Online backgammon sites started forming backgammon networks. A network is when different backgammon sites and brands share the same player pool. This is done to increase the overall player base and make sure that there are always enough games running.
Examples of such backgammon networks are Jadestone and Greentube Network.
These are great news, because the greater number of players there are the bigger choice for opponents you have. You can pick your opponents and play only versus the weakest to make sure your long-term win. But what happens when nobody wants to play versus you, because your rating is too high or because everyone knows that you are good?
How Backgammon Networks Can Help You Increase Your Profits?
Backgammon is a 1 on 1 game or Heads-up, if you like to call it this way. Although playing on the internet provides a level of anonymity for your real identity this cannot be said about your nicknames and rating at online backgammon sites. If you play a lot and win a lot you are going to get remembered by other players. This can result to lack of action for you. If you don’t play, games you cannot win money.
In the nowadays internet backgammon situation this can easily be overcome. How? You register to all available sites that are part of the backgammon network. You use the same personal information, but only change your Usernames or Nicknames so they have nothing to do with your previous ones. The benefits following from this are:
- You gain your anonymity back! Opponents will not know that you are the same guy with that other nickname. You can ever keep waiting for games on multiple sites of the same network and there is nothing wrong with that. Just don’t play versus yourself
- Why stop here? Play on different networks at the same time. You increase the number of opponents you can choose from and you are kept anonymous again, because you don’t concentrate on one site.
- You can play multiple tournaments at once. Play65 and Jadestone offers a very good tournament schedule. However some of their tournaments take place at the same time. You can play them both if you have a big enough monitor to fit the games and you think you can handle the pressure playing two games at once.
All the advice mentioned in this post are allowed at backgammon sites. It is not a breach of their Terms and Conditions to have registration on multiple sites from the same network. Only if you try to play versus yourself you are in breach of the T&C, because it is considered as colluding.
