A series of games for a specified number of points. According to the land and online casinos rules, the player who reaches the specified number of points first wins the match.

What is a Backgammon Money Session?

An individual game where the players agree to play for a particular wager per point. The winner of the game collects the value of the points won during the game, including a gammon or backgammon, multiplied by the value of the doubling cube. It is called a session, because players can continue to play games against one another at the same table.
