All the tournaments are individual competitions in their own right. However, over the year, points will be accrued by all entrants based on their achievements in whichever of these events they enter.
Entry is £20 for all tournaments.
Approximately 5% will be levied from all entry fees to cover the provision of year end prizes, and a further 5% will be charged by Bristol Backgammon for admin expenses. The remainder of the entry fee money goes on prizes for the individual tournaments.
In each tournament there will be two flights of straight knock-out, with all matches in the main flight being played to 9 points, with consolation flight matches being played to 7 points.
Players eliminated in their first match of the main flight will be entered into the consolation flight.
All matches in these tournaments are subject to clock rules, with each player having a time bank of one minute and thirty seconds times the match length. There will be a delay of ten seconds (online, but twelve seconds when the series returns to face-to-face play) before time banks start to be eroded.
NOTE: All the above events have associated with them two optional side pools -- at £10 and £10 -- which have no bearing whatsoever on the GP20 table.
