After 2016 Turkish Online Backgammon Tournament

TOT2016 Turkish Online Backgammon Championship ended with UĞUR İLHAMİ ÖZDEN being the winner among 244 players after 15 rounds of matches scoring 12 wins, 1 bye, and 2 losses. Tournament director Sabri Büyüksoy presented Uğur İlhami Özden his prizes in Bodrum, Turkey where they met first time in person. Özden as a fighter, entrepreneur, and team-spirited person well deserves this priceless win among a big group of Turkish or Turkey-resident backgammon players living all around the world.

Second place went to Emrullah Coşar, a great performer from Istanbul recently winning a lot in other tournaments. Third place was shared by two master players: 2012 World Champion Nevzat Doğan from Denmark and phenomenal Turkish player Zafer Taş from Istanbul. Fourth place went to Ömer Kukul from Aydin, Turkey. Fifth place went to four players: Ümit Bata, Amaç Volkan Er, Fatih Öziş andTaner Uçarer.
