Speedgammon Grand Prix 2020

Tournament #4 of 9,

Thursday, July 23rd,

ONLINE at 7.15pm at the Heroes site.


The details:
This is a clock event which is not for the faint hearted! Matches are to 5 points, and 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 7 seconds. If you run out of time, you have lost the match!
Entry is 10, and payment must be made in advance (contact Ian Tarr by email for details);
At least 80% of the entry pot will be distributed as prizes, while the remainder is split between the Speedgammon Grand Prix prize fund and an admin fee.
The tournament consists of multiple flights of knock-out, the precise number of which depends on the numbers entering.
Everyone plays in the initial main flight, which decides the tournament winner and runner-up, who win cash prizes.
Winners of all other flights receive small cash prizes.
Furthest progression side pools are available at 10 and 20, which will be won outright or shared on the night.
This is one of nine such events this year, with performances rewarded by points in the Speedgammon Grand Prix.
