Baltimore Backgammon Added USBGF Money Event Monday February 19, 2018

The Baltimore Backgammon Club is announcing that USBGF Added Money will be included on our regular 3rd Monday event February 19, 2018.

The added money goes to the USBGF member that advances the furthest.

We will adopt an elimination format viewed by many Backgammon Clubs around the country as more appropriate for a club that meets on a week night. (Want Details? See: http://www.bkgm.com/articles/Davis/CBPTournamentProcedures.html ) This format guarantees each player in the tournament two matches but not necessarily two losses. Players who lose their first match in the main bracket will be filtered into a Consolation Bracket where they must lose a second match to be eliminated from the tournament. Players who win their first match in the main bracket will continue in that bracket but will be eliminated from the tournament after their first loss. Match Lengths Usually: Main Bracket 5 Points (Finals 7 Points), Consolation Bracket 5 Points. In the that we have fewer than five players, we reserve the right to go to a doubleelimination round robin format instead of the above.

This is part of the USBGF Added Money Local Club Initiative. The winner of the added money (USBGF member) will *also* win an entry into the free-roll inter-club Championships in March 2018. The winner of that online event will win an entry into the ABT event of their choice. They will *also* be featured in an article in the PrimeTme magazine and have the finals match analyzed by an expert.
