Organized backgammon is started to play in Croatia.
We founded Croatian Backgammon Federation - CBgF and established Croatian Backgammon Tour - CBT, with eight masters qualifiers per year and with Masters in December (only in January, July and August we have no tourney).
Some tournaments are two days long (Dubrovnik, Bol, Rijeka) some of them only one day (Bihać, Split, Zagreb). These are low entry fee tournaments (~50 euros) with hybrid swiss/KO format (mostly), so you have guaranteed six matches at least. Matches are 7 pointers in swiss and 9 pointers in main KO. On last three tournaments we have average 34 players per tourney. All these tournaments are open and you are very welcome.
I invite you especially on 1st Dubrovnik Backgammon Open: 15-16.05.2010.
