Brighton Summer Open Backgammon 2019

at The Brighton Grosvenor Casino 15th - 18th August 2019

Welcome to All

This is the second running of the Brighton Summer Open originally the idea of the late Paul Gilbertson who passed away in 2018 and Tim Parfitt who is carrying on the event in his memory.

The first event was held at the Hilton Brighton Metropole hotel in September 2018, the main sponsor being the Grosvenor Casino.

Hopefully we can raise some money along the way for two local charities; Raystede centre for Animal welfare and Save Madeira Terraces, My Suki came from Raystede

The 2018 Masters Winner was Michael Larsen from Denmark, one of 13 nations represented. Michael has promised to return to defend his title and most of the other attendees have expressed interest.

I am pleased that the collaboration with Brighton Grosvenor Casino will continue for the foreseeable future as they go through a major refurbishment in January 2019 which will then allow it to host the next tournament in August as well as smaller monthly events throughout the year.

There were 22 registration payments received before 1st March 2019 and those participants have qualified for a £5 discount and a free £10 bet in the casino.

We have arranged a few discount deals at local hotels nearby but there are many other places to stay.

We will be limiting entry to 64 players in both Masters and Intermediate flights. Please register as soon as possible 


World Backgammon Knockout

As an extra bonus, there will be a £5 pool in both the Masters and the Intermediate groups to win a place in the second phase (last 256) of this unique tournament.

The players who choose to be in this pool and progress furthest in both categories get the opportunity to win the projected first prize of 12500 euros (subject to conditions)
