player has 1 second on clock, crazy tournament game

In the last month or two I saw a backgammon tournament on youtube that I want to watch again, but I can't find it.

One of the players was Mochy, and I can't remember who the other player was, but I do not believe he was well known.

In one of their games, the unknown opponent has 1 second on his clock for most/all of the game.

Eventually, the unknown player has all but 1 or 2 checkers off the board, while Mochy has all his checkers on his opponent's side of the board.

As the game goes on we watch Mochy slowly shift his prime across his opponents home board, and the outfield and try to make his way home, while the unknown opponent tries over and over and over to get his 1 or 2 checkers past this moving prime to win. With 1 second on his clock the entire time!

I'm sure if you've seen it you remember it. It wouldn't surprise me if it is a famous game. Anyone have additional details or a link? Thanks in advance.

I thought the hive mind would instantly know what game I was talking about. Oh well. If you do see it sometime in the future, maybe you'll think of this thread and come back and post the link...

I havenīt been able to post the link, but Mochy posted on another forum a couple of days ago about an incredible game he played. I guess itīs the same one. If you go on his youtube channel, itīs the most recent video.

There is a video on YouTube in which Mochy plays a backgame like described in the original post, but there was no clock, his opponents only had three off for most of the game (and one back), and it was not a tournament. It was a choeuette and Mochy ended up winning on the last roll thanks to his opponents missing a re-double late.

The match you're referring to is Mochy (Japan) vs. Ron Loero (Venezuela) at the Texas Backgammon Championships in 2015. The game you're referring to starts about 36 minutes into the clip below:
