You can see here in the tabular form that the first backgammon tournaments were held in Las Vegas. Afterwards on the Bahamas and since then in Monte Carlo.

Backgammon tournaments are played on a high level – a backgammon strategy is inevitable – without dice theory and the necessary knowledge of the game you cannot win. One way to become nearly as good as the world champions is to attend the Backgammon Masterclass – but also when playing backgammon online, you can practice backgammon. Last but not least, backgammon online tournaments also offer the possibility to play backgammon for money, just like in big tournaments on location.
