I used to play in IBA (International Backgammon Alliance) which sounds like some extremist organisation, but ran regular tourneys and had some pretty good players.

I can't remember which platform they play on, or whether it's still going.

Curious as to why you ask?

GridGammon hold tournaments every day, mostly shorter than Fibs tourneys, but fun!   ;)  Interestingly, they are run by humans only who are anonymously identified by a pseudo nick only used for the tourneys.  There are no TourneyBots on GridGammon.  :)  Also, the macros are presented and preapproved by someone, before the tournament director is approved.  Leaves no room for anyone to bash the TD for inappropriate macros or anything else, for that matter.

At Gridgammon, there are 4 tourneys daily M-F, one on Saturday and one on Sunday.  I live in USA, central standard time zone.  The tourneys for me are, 2 ptrs, 9 am, 1 ptrs, noon, 3 ptrs, 4:30 pm, 1 ptrs, 7 pm, and Nackgammon 2 ptrs M-Thurs, 3 ptrs on Friday, 8:30 am 3 ptrs, on Saturdays, and 8:30 pm 1 ptrs on Sunday.

I won two tourneys yesterday.   :yes:

The difference is mostly shorter matches and shorter sign-up time.  They only allow 10 minutes of sign-up time, so you have to be on your toes.  They are quickies.
