Rated Match Policy

On 1st January 2018, the AusBGF adopted its official results policy PDF, which is designed to establish a standard for the quality of results posted to this site.

The AusBGF policy is supplemented by local policies, which give club managers the freedom to define local rules that work for the way their events are run.

The manager for Sydney Backgammoners data on this site is Gary Stavrou.

The local policy for Sydney Backgammoners is as follows:

All completed tournament matches played according to the official random draw at Sydney Backgammoners Club meetings (from June 20, 2018) will contribute to individual players’ Australian Backgammon Federation ratings. Settled matches, unfinished matches, walkovers and friendlies will not be rated. 

The tournament rules published on the Sydney Backgammoners website shall be applied. Players will adhere to the normally accepted rules of backgammon. The general principles published by the Australian Backgammon Federation in their Rated Match Policy will also apply.

Postponed or unfinished matches should be completed as soon as possible by arrangement between the players concerned and the result reported by both players.
