Unfortunately this clashes with the 'Live in London' event run by Mike Main, so I and a few others will not be able to enter.  I hope it goes well and will be interested to see the results.

Hi Diane

can you give me the exact dates of the london tournaments?

I might consider changing the final tournament date.

Cheers

Friday 10th to Sunday 12th November - you can check out the whole event here..http://www.backpacker-backgammon.com/LiL06/schedule.html

Allow some time for travelling too - I get back from the Vegas open the day before that starts - and runnerup is coming from Germany to participate in London Live.

If the dates are going to be more compatible I better go check out those satellites...  :cool:

A technical question for gammonempire....there are two of us at this address who are both backgammon players and would like to take part in this tourney.  Is the gammon empire software going to detect two users in the same tourney from the same ISP and stop us both from playing?

I get no joy trying to run the java applet from safari on macosx, just a repeating dialogue about disconnection detected.  I get in with the java in firefox on the same mac (go figure!), but then I still do not see the "special event" tab, and the interface seems painfully slow.

The cashier is Windows-only, so I get the use of a windows machine, jump through the excessive hoops, I put in my bonus code but I don't get the bonus, so I'm still not in.

not a good experience.

I downloaded the famous software. After a few minutes I got the blue screen of death from Micro$hit.

Always the same problem since the beginning !
I have an error message when it starts telling me that it can't open c:\documents and settings\myprofil\Buttons\aaron.copie.bmp  :wacko:

Why does it search image in my profil rather than in his particular file in programs Files\fdelfibs ?

Congratulations to Tomawaky who won todays (23/10) satellite.

A question for GammonEmpire:

Obviously I may only win one entry to the real tourney. Do I not, however, still have an incentive to re-enter the satellites to deprive others of an entry? This may seem mean - damnit it IS mean - but it is a cash tourney so normal niceness could be overruled I feel!

son unos delicuentes, yo habia ganado una clasificacion para hoy y me borraron del torneo. espero me den un motivo, no me dieron la posiblidad de jugarlo y eso me da que pensar que son unos cagones y estafadores, porque seguramente esos 18 que jugaron eran todos amigos suyos.
