Bristol Backgammon

Handicap Trophy 2020

Positions after the April tournament

(Series suspended until the resumption of live play)


Note: a 'D' next to a tournament score is a discard, i.e. a score which does not count towards the total because only a player's best five tournaments count (reduced from six after cancellations).
And the finishing order depends on the following: (1) total points (after discards); (2) fewest tournaments entered; (3) highest percentage of matches won during the HT season; (4) results of any meetings of tied players during the HT season; (5) play-off (where necessary).
An '*' next to a points score indicates a match which has not yet been completed.

Ed Turner's sponsorship of this series will resume whenever we are back to live play, and will be applied to whatever format the competition consists of.

This year's Handicap Trophy results:


Handicaps of players are shown in parentheses after their names. The way the handicaps work is that two players drawn together will start with the higher handicapped player having a points advantage equal to the difference between the two handicaps, e.g. when Player A (who has a handicap of 1) meets Player B (whose handicap is 4), Player B begins the match with a 3-0 advantage.
All matches in all flights are played to 7 points.
