Format

Players will be seeded in Round 1. Opponents in the undefeated bracket will play a best 2-of-3 15 point matches. Losers will enter the 1-Loss bracket and play a best 2-of-3 13 pt matches.

The winner of the undefeated bracket will play a best 2-of-3 19 point matches with a 1 win advantage over the winner of the 1-loss bracket.

Each match will be reported individually until one player has 2 wins.

Each round will be 10 days duration. This may be varied slightly by the host to accommodate requests for extensions.

General Web-based Tournament Rules All rules pertaining to conduct of web-based tournaments will be as provided in the Warp Gammon Web-based Tournament rules.  Players should pay particular attention to policies regarding scheduling.  Players who do not make a sufficient effort to schedule and play matches risk disqualification and suspension.  Players who do not have enough time and flexibility to schedule and play 3 matches during each round at times convenient to opponents in all time zones are advised not to register.
Scheduling Standards

We expect players to have updated their scheduling details in their profiles to include their server nics, timezone and normally available times for play. Players who do not have this information entered risk a forfeit loss in the event of an unplayed match.

You do NOT need to contact your opponents with your scheduling details once they are entered in your profile. This information will be displayed when your opponent accesses the scheduling form.

As general guidelines, a player should contact his opponent within the first 2 days of each round. Players who do not schedule in the first half of the round, or fail to turn up for a scheduled match risk a forfeit loss.

Please use the confirmation buttons on the scheduling form to indicate whether you are expecting a reply from your opponent.

If at all possible do not schedule less than 24 hours before the time you wish to play. Your opponent needs time to answer emails and respond. You cannot reasonably expect an opponent to be present if you schedule a match a few hours ahead.

While you are free to catch opponents in the lobby or arrange matches by contact through Messenger, such informal arrangements can not be considered in the event of a forfeit and your opponent is under no obligation to accept such invitations even if he is free. Please confirm all arrangements via the scheduling form.

Players do not need to apply for forfeits, they will be granted automatically at the end of each round.

The tournament host may, where a situation presents itself, modify or depart from the published rules to resolve situations that may compromise the integrity of the event. This will occur only in the cases of unanticipated situations, peculiarities pertaining to internet backgammon play, or where a variation would be manifestly fairer to a large number of players.

Where a decision involves the tournament host, or a decision by the host be challenged, it may, should the interested parties prefer, be resolved by a third party agreeable to all concerned.
