Known in Denmark as "Mr. Backgammon". English from birth, lived in Denmark for 30 years. Before returning to England in 2005, to where the online Backgammon Shop has been relocated.
Chris became addicted to the game of backgammon in 1983 and since it has been the most important thing in his life.
In 1986 Chris was the instigator and one of the founders of the Danish Backgammon Federation, he sat on the board of the DBgF until 1998, and gained worldwide respect and recognition for his tremendous work for organised backgammon. He it still a member today, and an active player both at the national and international levels.
Working seriously, full time with the game, the organisation and the Backgammon Shop since 1986 has given Chris a unique know-how, and this has lead to several innovations. Both within tournaments (StopPots, computerised draws, rating systems) and within boards (development of improved attaché boards with better locks, playing surface, hinges etc.).
Chris Ternel is without doubt a world authority in backgammon - an expert who will give you the best possible advice and service.
