Join us for a weekend of backgammon in the historic university city of Cambridge. Day 1 consists of a five-round Swiss stage, guaranteeing everyone plenty of play; the top sixteen proceed to a knockout on day 2 for the title and a big cash prize; there are still rewards available to everyone else in a knockout Consolation and Last Chance. On Saturday night, for those who want to play more, there will be Consulting Doubles, subject to demand.
Plus: the winner, if a UKBGF member, will also qualify for the UKBGF Tour Winners' Invitational in January 2020, with accommodation included! (If the winner is not a member, or can't attend this event, it will be handled as shown on the TWI website).
We will be playing at the University Centre, a fully accessible riverside venue in the heart of the city.
For the backgammon widows - and widowers - there's plenty to see and do within walking distance and in the surrounding area.
For players who wish to have their games recorded for a BMAB submission, we will do our best to support you - please enquire for details. A limited amount of equipment may be available for hire and a transcription service is available for a small fee.
