Speedgammon Grand Prix 2017
Round Robin evening
#1 of 7,
Thursday, February 2nd,
This is a clock event which is not for the faint hearted! Matches are to 5 points, and you play everyone in your group (probably giving you three, four or five matches).
The scary bit is the amount of time allowed. Each player gets an allowance of 2 minutes per 5-point match, with delays at just 10 seconds. If you run out of time, you have lost the match!
Entry is £10, and at least 80% will be distributed as prizes to group winners, with money shared where there is a tie for the lead. The remainder is split between the Clock Blitz Grand Prix prize fund and an admin fee.
This is the first of seven such events this year, with performances rewarded by points in the Speedgammon Grand Prix.
If you have a board, please bring it!
