Tournaments are the biggest backgammon challenge going. Whether you're playing for big bucks or just small change, taking on and defeating a field of backgammon players is just about intense as it gets. Since the length of a match is limited, any player can take on a world class player on a lucky day and win. At PartyGammon.com, we have lots of tournaments and huge prize pools. If you are new to backgammon tournaments and want to know more, then this is the place to find out.
A backgammon tournament is composed of several players. The winner of each round advances to the next round, while the loser is eliminated (single elimination). Knockout matches are played until one player emerges as the tournament winner.
Tournaments will be of either static length (match lengths are fixed and remain constant until the final round) or progressive length (the matches become longer as a player advances).
To join a tournament, you must pay a buy-in and a fee. Generally, the more people who join a tournament, the greater the potential winnings will be.
Varieties of tournaments
There are two types of tournaments:
Regular tournaments - these are pre-arranged, with a fixed starting time, which is announced on the site.
Sit&Go tournaments - these are available 24/7, and just need the required number of players to register in order to begin.
