TOURNAMENT FORMAT

All matches use the doubling cube with Main flight matches to 7 points and Consolation matches to 5 points. Time clocks are used to keep the event on schedule. We use the US Backgammon Tournament Rules & Procedures (January 2009).

The format guarantees each player a minimum of two matches, (not necessarily two losses). With a field up to 16 players the tournament is generally completed in less than 4 hours.

Tournament Director: Jerry Godsey
Assistant Director: Stuart Thomson
