Full Name: Hardy Hübener
Date of birth: 14 Nov 1963
Current City of Residence: Wilhelmshaven, Germany
Backgammon Nickname: Hardy_whv on FIBS
Current Skill level: Advanced (which is less advanced than I wished to be)
Playing Backgammon live since: 2006
Favorite Tournament Venue: NORDIC OPEN in Denmark
Titles won: So far only some local tournaments in Hamburg and Cologne.
Favorite Backgammon book(s): I love my whole collection of backgammon literature, presently containing around 240 books. A must read is of course Magriel’s “Backgammon” and Trice’s “Backammon Boot Camp”. A good selection of great backgammon books can be found on my website: http://www.hardyhuebener.de/engl/lesen.html
Favorite Food: Red wine (usually from France)
Other Interests & Hobbies: Sailing, my Website, my Backgammon Forum (only in German)
If I could change anything in the Backgammon world, I would… : Create a backgammon tournament, that would deserve the title “World Championship” (Swiss format for the first rounds, usage of clocks, refreshments for reasonable prices, changing venues)
