Robert Schlagman Cup 2017

On Saturday 29th July, the Cumberland hosted a tournament for 32 players, comprising both members as well as invited guests, to compete for the Robert Schlagman Cup, a tournament set up in 2015 in memory of Robert who was a long term member of HCC and a founder member of the backgammon section.

As in previous years, it attracted a strong field, including a no. of the UK’s top rated players as well as Robert’s two sons, Alex and Jules. The eventual winner was Larry Smyth who defeated fellow guest player, Andy Guthrie, in the final. Losing semi-finalists were Dan Stranescu (CLTC) and Jules Schlagman, with the Consolation event being won by Alan Briefel (CLTC) who beat Peter Hartley (RAC).
