Ian Terry, the U.S. National Backgammon Team captain, has been playing competitive backgammon for over two decades. He is also a member of the U.S. National Chess Team and U.S. Men’s World Team Handball team
Ian Terry, the winner of season 14 of “Big Brother” has recently revealed that he will be representing the United States in the 2023 World Backgammon Team Tournament in Germany later this month. The members of his “Big Brother” family are ecstatic for him.
Terry is scheduled to leave at the end of August
Terry said on Twitter, “Happy to report I was chosen to play on the United States National Backgammon Team in the 2023 World Backgammon Team Tournament in Germany,” accompanied with a screenshot of the World Backgammon Federation’s Facebook post announcing the team’s roster.
Carry Hoarty, Roberto Litzenberger, Karen Davis, captain Phil Simborg, and David Klausa make up the remainder of the squad. There are teams coming from all over the globe, according to the World Backgammon Federation’s Facebook announcements, including Armenia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Norway, Romania, Sweden, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.
According to the event website, the competition will take place from August 30 to September 5 in the “Viehmarktthermen” in Trier, Germany, which is Germany’s oldest city. The remains of a Roman bath complex dating from the first century AD are known as the Viehmarktthermen. According to the Trier website, they were discovered in the late 1980s, and a structure was constructed around the remains to protect them. The competition will be held at this location.
There will be team competitions, singles contests, a speed competition, and a pairs competition, as well as an award ceremony and banquet at the conclusion of the event, according to the backgammon tournament schedule.
The team tournament is set up such that each team has a maximum of seven players, the clock runs constantly until they achieve nine points, each round has five players, and each player has three lives. And, in case you’re curious, there are a slew of COVID safety procedures in place, including evidence of immunization or a recent negative test, all of which are listed on the website.
Terry was also recently asked to comment on the broadcast of the American Backgammon Tour Open Finals by the United States Backgammon Federation. If you want to hear his comments, you may watch the stream here.
Terry has a lot of support from the ‘Big Brother’ family
I was asked to join the live broadcast in order to remark on the Minnesota Open Backgammon Championships finals.
Several “Big Brother” houseguests congratulated him and wished him luck in the comments section of his tweet.
“Wonderful news!!!!! I’m ecstatic for you!!!!” Andy Herren, the season 15 winner, wrote this. “Really amazing and highly deserved!” Eric Stein said. Have fun!”
“F*** yes, dude, that’s so awesome!” wrote witty Matt Hoffman, whose Twitter name is “Matt Hoffman-Moonves.” Congrats!!”
Backgammon was all the rage in the “Big Brother All-Stars” house last summer, if you remember. Terry spent a lot of time playing and teaching the other houseguests how to play as well. He is also a “champion level backgammon player and [has] achieved a rating of ‘Master’ on the most prominent backgammon site on the web,” according to his cast profile for all-stars.
He also expressed his desire to bring his own backgammon board inside the home since it is of the highest quality. Terry, on the other hand, unveiled a brand-new board on Facebook in March, saying, “Very happy with my new board!” Gündüz Güneş produces a fantastic product.”
Best wishes to him and the rest of the American squad!
Season 23 of “Big Brother” airs on CBS on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
