The 9th MERIT OPEN INTERNATIONAL BACKGAMMON CHAMPIONSHIP (added prize money 25.000 €) is scheduled at the Merit Park Hotel & Casino in Kyrenia / Girne (Northern Cyprus) from 8 to 13 November 2022 (registrations start on 7, Warm-up on 8 and Main Tournament on 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13th November, 2022).
November has been MERIT TIME for nine years: this tournament has created a new standard in the world of Backgammon. It is a kind of Wimbledon: no other tournament has the power to attract so many players from all over the world.
This event is a MERIT-WBF partnership and is organized and directed by Marco Fornasir and Arda Findikoglu under the aegis of WBF Worldwide Backgammon Federation. The tournament has an added prize of € 25,000 offered by MERIT and has scheduled an entire week dedicated to Backgammon, with 13 different activities, including the WetGammon tournament, the only underwater tournament in the world.
In addition, the MERIT OPEN is famous for offering, during the days of the tournament, a complimentary buffet with sweet and savory food and all kinds of drinks. This is one of the musts that characterizes this tournament.

Hope you can join us for this exciting event in North Cyprus!
