1st European Winter Games: Results and Bulletins

A New Event is Born 

This new competition was created and added to the EBL calendar to allow all players coming from around the world to participate during the even-numbered years in a team competition different from the one organised in the odd-numbered years at the EBL Open European Championships. The location is prestigious in the Principality of Monaco and the EBL will award medals and Master Points.

Winter Games Format

The teams are playing 15×10 board matches over the first three days using the Swiss system( the ZIMMERMANN CUP), at the end of which the top 16 will advance to the knock out rounds, where each match will consist of 60 boards played in three sets of 20. Teams that fail to qualify for the knock outs can compete in the BAM (FMB BAM TROPHY), as can those who are defeated in the Rounds of 16 and 8.
