Bart Brooks is winner of the 1974 European Championships at Monte Carlo, now called the World Championships, and has won many lesser tournaments in that time. Shortly following Monte Carlo he had a twenty-year hiatus from backgammon but has returned, arming himself with computer knowledge which every expert makes use of today. In the few tournaments he manages to visit he has done well. He is on FIBS as Black star and carries a 1900+ rating at present (October 2004).
