General Tournament Format and Requirements
•   9 Rounds switz system - triple KO
•   Each team comprises 5 players. There are no alternatives or reserves. If a player is unable to continue playing the tournament for valid reasons, a single substitution may be allowed subject to the agreement of the Tournament Director.
•   The Captain chooses the seed order (1 to 5) before the start of the tournament, and this remains constant throughout.
•   All matches must be played on the GridGammon server and be recorded in match files format. Match files are submitting to the Tournament Directors using the website. Where a match is completed but neither player was able to save matchfiles the result is valid if it can be proofed (in history ...). Match files should be complete or, if there were unavoidable computer disconnections, the part-files should cover the whole of the match.
•   Where cheating or collusion is suspected, matches will be analysed in detail and scrutinised by the Ruling Committee. Where transgressions are considered to have occurred, the individual players will be expelled from the tournament (and any future involvement with EBIF event), and the teams not allowed to make substitutions.
•   Captains are expected to take a positive role in monitoring and reporting results, and in fostering good communications and sportsmanship between teams, by ensuring that his individual team members act politely and fairly at all times, giving proper consideration for their opponents (e.g., no complaining of bad luck, no unnecessary computer disconnections).
•   The completion is subject to the general EBIF Tournament Rules found on the pages of the EBIF website.
triple KO
•   The competition starts on 01 September 2014 and is scheduled to end on 01 December  2014.
•   Each team plays maximum nine matches - as soon as a team lost three times it is out .
•   After nine rounds the first tie-breaker is the head-to-head results between teams. The second tie-breaker are the single player points.
•   each round is announced on the website with deadline and an email will be send to the capitans of the teams
•   Each player is individually responsible for arranging and scheduling their matches, for this "scheduling" on the website has to be used. Captains are expected to monitor the progress of their team members to ensure timely completion within this phase, and to avoid incurring penalties.
•   team selection - duty of the capitan -  should be determined by placement in online national championships for each country - it is also allowede to use the pr of international or national ebif tournaments for selection of players, in keeping with the overall philosophy of the EBIF. Nations without national championship can use other methods for qualification!
We hope that all participants will thoroughly enjoy this year’s tournament, making it a big success for all of us.
Yours sincerely,
Bernhard Mayr
EBIF Tournament Director
