New info! This event will be a USBGF Local Club Initiative Tournament. The USBGF will add a $60+ sidepool ($60 plus an additional $5 more for each out-of-town USBGF member that attends). This sidepool will go to the USBGF member that is best at the tournament. The sidepool winner will be entered into an online event with all LCI winners. The winner of that tournament will get a free entry into the ABT main event of their choice.
All matches clocked.
Repeat--The rule is all matches clocked. If players try to play their matches without a clock they are cheating. If players are caught playing a match without a clock, a clock will be put on that match immediately and both players in the match will be given a 4 minute clock penalty in the following match.
Please bring your clocks and boards if you own them.
This event is co-sponsored by the Hoosier Backgammon Club and the Bloomington Backgammon Club.
