Paul Magriel dies

I'm sad to have to report that Paul Magriel passed away yesterday in Las Vegas, age 71. He was found dead in his apartment by his assistant who was helping him work on a new book. No other details are immediately available.

RIP. I learnt a lot from his book when it first came out.

Re: Paul Magriel dies

Paul Magriel's "Backgammon" was the first book I ever read on Backgammon. It inspired me and I owe so much to him for writing that book.

A sad day.

Re: Paul Magriel dies

Very sad to hear this....I watched him play in some WPT events, very good player and was also very entertaining. You don’t see that very much these days.

Mr. Robertie,
I sent you a private message a couple days ago....please let me know what you think.

Thank you!
