We are happy to have a prestigious Grand Finale, featuring several Backgammon Giants and Grandmasters from different countries.
The Grand Finale will take place in Prague on 24 and 25 of November 2016, prior to the Prague Open & Masters. It will be played with clocks in a Knockout-format, 11 point matches (final match 13 points).
The winner receives 1.500 € + a custom made GMS backgammon board + a unique trophy. The finalist receives 1.250 € + a unique trophy.
There will be a registration fee of 50 € and a daily flat charge of 30 € which includes unlimited consumption of soft drinks (water, juices, sodas) in the playing room as well as a dinner buffet (with a choice of meat/fish/vegetarian).
We recommend to arrive no later than Thursday 24th of November 17:00 and not to leave before Monday 28th of November, as the seated awards dinner will take place around 22:00 on Sunday.
Please be aware that seats are not transferrable, nor can they be sold. In case of no-show, players will be substituted by the next available player from the final Point Race Standing by order of ranking. In the unlikely event that not all of the 16 spots can be filled, byes will be attributed in the first round at a public random draw.
The Grand Majestic Hotel**** is very centrally located. All sightseeing spots are within walking distance and features all amenities of an international 4-stars hotel.
Please confirm your availability and your participation as soon as possible per email. Should you not make it, please also send a message, so you can be replaced in a timely manner.
For those who will be out of the Grand Finale, the Prague Open will be available to play and the Prague Masters, starting on 25th of November.
Good luck to all and see you in beautiful Prague!
