Bristol Backgammon

5 Grand Prix (GP5)

The background

Inaugurated in 2013, this is a series of six knock-out events per year, each with an entry fee of just 5.
This "budget" entry fee is an acknowledgment that, for some players (especially those new to competition), the "blanket" 10 entry fee hitherto charged for most Thursday events was not appropriate.
The six events will form a grand prix similar to other Bristol Backgammon grand prix series already in existence, with similar rules, including two flights of knock-out with 7- and 5-point matches.
