Dear bgonline reader,
We are still a good 10 months away from the London Open 2014 but we have already sold a quarter of the tickets. 64 players have signed up for what will be the largest backgammon tournament to be held in living memory in the UK. Places are strictly limited to 256 players.
For the first time we will be running a Super Jackpot alongside the London Open and the Professionals' Tournament. Registration for all three tournaments is £40. Entry is free to the London Open, £250 for the Pros and £1,000 for the Super Jackpot. 100% of entry fees are returned as prizes.
You can buy tickets for the tournament here:
