Invitational means you're invited unless you're uninvited.
Restricted means anyone not an Open player.
If you're unsure, just ask one of the director's.
We may limit either division to 16, if there are only 1 or 2 more than that. The director's may ask to move someone up or down to prevent this situation. To ensure your spot, please RSVP.
We use ABT rules. This means dice on checkers are good and legal moves. For further details, see http://usbgf.org/docs/rules.pdf
Mickey's opens at 1100. There is often a chouette before and after the tournament.
* Match lengths are based on 16 person brackets. The directors may adjust them to suit the actual number signed up. For example, an 8 person bracket would be 2 points longer.
