A game of Pro Backgammon is really a match which consists of a series of backgammon games. The object is to earn a total of 5 points over the series. The winner of each game earns a number of points which are based on the type of win and are multiplied by the value on the doubling cube.

Each game in a Pro Backgammon match can be won in the following ways:

Single Game: The winner earns 1 point for bearing off all her pieces while her opponent is also bearing off.
Gammon:  The winner earns 2 points for bearing off all her pieces while all her opponent's pieces are still on the board.
Backgammon: The winner earns 3 points for bearing off all her pieces while her opponent has not born off any and still has pieces on the bar or in the winner's home table.

The number of points earned by the type of win is multiplied by the number on the doubling cube to determine the points earned in a game. The first player to reach 5 points wins the Pro Backgammon match.
