This weekend was stage 5 of the UK Tour, in Cambridge, and we’re delighted to announce the results!
First of all, we would like to thank all 128 players for making 2019 a sell-out.
Many players took advantage of the cheap Thursday night hotel rates to arrive early and miss the Friday traffic. This resulted in over 70 players being in the room at 2pm on Friday for the first of our added money Freerolls, and what proved to be the very popular cashouts (an idea we stole from Roger Porter).
This last weekend saw the fourth leg of the UK Tour – the Blackpool Imperial Cup, the largest single flight event in the country… a fuller report will follow in due course but for now here are our winners:
After a couple of years in Hampstead, the London Open returned to the centre of the capital in style, its new home being the Ambassador Hotel in Bloomsbury.
It’s also moved under the umbrella of Backgammon London, with Andrew Selby and Simon Morecroft directing. A very large turnout was expected with both Masters (80) and Intermediates (48) sold out in advance.
We’re delighted to report the results of stage 2 on the 2019 UK Tour, the St Albans Open:
