INFORMATION (updated 26/11/18)

Some of the organisers of the above events are not directly involved with the UK Tour, but if they want to assist they are welcome to do so. All that is required of them is to make available the names and positions of players in the Main and Consolation. This is purely a Biba project and any funding is via Biba, etrants pay nothing towards it, it is a totally free-entry element of each event.

Remaining Entrants 1.15 pts

For the Last 8/16 of the Main, Consolation, and Last Chance in each of the tour events, points are awarded as shown to the left. Event entrants gaining more than one award will only be awarded the higher score, they are not accrued. A running points total and leader board will be published on the Biba web site following each event, and in the Bibafix upon publication. After the final event the player with the highest score will be awarded a cash prize (tba).


Remember. There are no fees to pay to enter the BBT - the only fees you incur are those to enter each event. The BBT is not an official part of the above events (excepting those organised and run by Biba) but it is hoped that its involvement will result in more entrants for each event.

If your club is staging a local tournament that is open to all and you would like to be part of the BBT, please email and let us know. It is also very likely that Biba Grand Prix Points can also be applied to your event.

The Biba Backgammon Tour Final 2018

Early Saturday morning at the November 2018 UK Finals the BBT Final got under way (again, players lower than 16th were in the draw) culminating in a final match between Gerry Enslin and Paul Christmas. Neither player had won this title before so we were going to have a new name on the Champion’s List. Playing to 5-points it was Gerry who came out on top to take the £100 prize. Well done, Gerry.

It all starts again at the Bright ‘n’ Breezy in January. If you want a go at the title and prize money make sure you’re entered for the Bright ‘n’ Breezy and the rest of the BBT events during 2019.

Bright 'n' Breezy 11-13 January, 2019 ...

Not a lot to say about the first one. It's very early days but at least Brighton entrants got off to a good start. Robert Perry tops the listing with his friend Dave Pritchard in second place. These two are loyal supporters of the Tour so and I expect their scores to increase over the coming months. Things will start changing as and when the Tour gets going.

Questions & Answers (latest at the top)

Q: According to the table shown above points are given to the top 16 in the Main and the Consolation. With this in mind why do some events show a lot less than 32 awards?

A: Well spotted! I think the events you refer to are events in which there is a Progressive Consolation (i.e. some Main losers go into the Consolation at higher rounds than Round 1). These entrants in effect will have gained two awards; however, because BBT points aren't accumulated only the higher of the two awards is retained.

Q: Do the qualifiers have to be Biba members?

A: No. The Tour is open to any backgammon player. It is designed to promote regional backgammon and (hopefully) increase entry levels for them. Of course, if any of the finalists in January are not members of Biba they could join if they wanted to.  To get the Tour going this year Biba has added a few 'extra' events which will be replaced next year with more local ones.

Q: It is possible that two or more of those topping the chart at year end could share the same number of points thus giving a greater field of qualifiers. How would you decide who is in the Final?

A: Good point! I have decided to add 'attendance points' (AP) as a tie-breaker. All event entrants will get 1 AP for each event they enter. Those that support the tour the most will have more AP than those that enter only one or two events. Of course, if any entrants are not in the top 16 (or top 8) of any event then I might not have a record of their attendance, therefore it is incumbent upon such entrants to ensure the event TD informs Biba of their attendance or to notify me themselves.
