Chess and Backgammon -- on TV

Photo credit: Online Backgammon
The Israeli player, Shimon Kagan, who won the Israeli championship in 1967 and 1969, had just won the European championship in... Backgammon. (Hat tip: a personal friend who doesn't want his name mentioned.) It is interesting since this was actually noted on Israeli TV's most popular current events program -- London and Kirshenbaum -- on May 11th (link in Hebrew).

For shame! The awful things some chess players will do to get recognition...
