EUROPEAN BACKGAMMON TOUR

 

The Point Race:

 

Regardless of the format of each stop, every match you win in the Championship division counts towards the Point Race.

NEW: Regardless of the match length, for each match played (byes do not count) and won in the main round 11 points. Additionally, 10 points are awarded for each participation at any of the stops. In case of a play-off, each match played and won will add 7 points to a player.

Players who qualify directly for the Grand Finale by winning a stop of the EBGT or taking the option) will not be considered for the Point Race.

The top 11 performers in the Point Race will be granted an entry at the Grand Finale. Should any of the qualified players not be present at the Grand Finale, his spot will be given to the next available player of the Point Race, according to his ranking (from highest to lowest).

Seats are not transferable and can´t be sold. No direct buy-ins to the Grand Finale.

Each stop of the Tour will deduct 1,000 €uro from the prize-pool or the Added Money of the Champions Division to contribute and pay for the entries of qualifying winners from the Point Race.

17 to 23 real players will take part at the Grand Finale. In the unlikely event of a qualified player wins a stop, the finalist of that stop will be deducted the entry fee and qualifies. Should the finalist be already qualified as well, the semi-finalists will play off to qualify (the entry fee will be deducted from the prize pool of that winner).

Should the last qualifying spot of the Point Race show an equal number between 2 or more players, the one with the most participation at stops of the Tour will qualify.
