Speedgammon Evening

Thursday, December 17th,

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 90% of the entry pot will be distributed as prizes, while the remainder is an admin fee.
The tournament consists of three flights of knock-out, the draws for which will be held at 7.15pm, 8.15pm and 9.15pm respectively;
Everyone plays in the initial main flight, which decides the tournament winner and runner-up, who win cash prizes equivalent to 60% of the prize pool.
All players eliminated from the main flight by 8.15pm are eligible for the second flight, where 25% of the prize pool is split between the two finalists.
All players no longer involved in the first two flights at 9.15pm are eligible for the third flight, where 15% of the prize pool is split between the two finalists.
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 Speedgammon events this year, but please note the this year's Speedgammon Grand Prix has been suspended.
