The Intermediates Trophy
This is an annual tournament just for those who have not yet been granted Premier Status. It constitutes a rare chance to compete for silverware without encountering obstacles like Stuart Mann, Gaz Owen, Roland Herrera, etc.
The inaugural event was held in 2002, and it now has its regular spot in the Bristol Backgammon calendar.
Entry to the tournament is £5, and this pays for engraving the winner's name on the permanent trophy, plus either cash prizes or mementoes.
The event consists of a single flight of straight knock-out, with all matches being played to 7 points, except the final (which may be to 7, 9 or 11 points, depending on time constraints).
From the 2006 event, this became a part of the Intermediate Grand Prix.
