About this Event
We aim to provide players of all levels the ability to play the oldest board game in the world...backgammon, which is a super fun, exciting, and easy to learn board game.
We welcome players of all levels the ability to learn the basic rules of the game and to participate in relaxing tournaments in the atrium at Embassy Suites by Hilton San Diego La Jolla (Address: 4550 La Jolla Village Dr, San Diego, CA 92122). However, please make sure to check our website's calendar, at https://sandiegobackgammon.com/calendar/.
We run a traditional knock-out style tournament each week beginning at 6pm with registration closing no later than 6:30. Byes will be awarded on a random basis. Everyone will be able to play at least two matches with a consolation bracket for first round losers. All matches are 5 points and clock preferred (12 seconds per move with 10 minutes of reserve time for each player, and leniency with respect to new players) with use of the doubling cube and the Crawford Rule.
$20 entry fee (100% return to the prize pool). Optional side pools will also be available. The DMP tournament has a separate $10 entry with rebuys permitted.
The events are run by volunteers who will be offering a free lesson 30 minutes before each tournament.
