Welcome Back Series, 2021
The brainchild of a generous sponsor, this is a series set in place to celebrate the resumption of live backgammon afterthe pandemic lockdown.
There are six knock-out events, each with an entry fee of just £10, but the sponsor has added £75 to the prize pot for each tournament.
The events 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.
A unique addition to the series is that there are two sets of prizes for the best performers over the series.
The overall top three receive cash prizes of £100, £50 and £25, while the top three of those designated as "Tier 2" (just for this series) receive identical cash prizes.
The definition of "Tier 2" is: any player other than those who are not members of either Premier One or Premier Two, or are not in possession of a 0 or a 1 Bristol Backgammon handicap as at Thursday September 9th, 2021. ;
