ABT Live Tournaments

An American backgammon institution since 1993

Backgammon Players in the middle of competition.American Backgammon Tour (ABT) tournaments are a great opportunity to sharpen your backgammon skills while competing with players at your own skill level. Players enjoy winning prizes, meeting other backgammon enthusiasts, making new friends, and exploring interesting places across North America and beyond.

The ABT is a partnership between the U.S. Backgammon Federation (USBGF) and qualified directors and organizers. The USBGF sanctions these prestigious multi-day events, allowing participants to earn and accumulate points.  ABT points are earned by placing in sanctioned events. Players may also earn USBGF master points. Capturing the top honor of the American Backgammon Tour Player of the Year requires a combination of skill and supportive attendance in ABT events. An annual ceremony is held to honor the top performers.

A USBGF membership is required to play in an ABT-sanctioned event.
