Rated Match Policy

On 15th March 2017, the UKBGF adopted its official results policy (PDF), which is designed to establish a standard for the quality of results posted to this site.

The UKBGF 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 Liverpool data on this site is Ian Turner.

The local policy for Liverpool is as follows:

All matches played as part of the Club's '3 point' monthly meeting night will contribute to an individual players’ UKBGF ratings. Non-results, such as walk-overs, are excluded, as are any side-matches on the evening that are not part of the scheduled set of matches. In addition matches played as part of the Club's 11 point annual championship will also be included in a players' UKBGF ratings. The results of any matches played on either the Club's current second meeting of the month or any other separately organised adhoc Club meetings do not count towards a players' UKBGF ratings.

All matches, apart from the nackgammon and/or 1 point knockout event, played at the Liverpool Backgammon Club Open annual tournament in July will also contribute to an individual players' UKBGF ratings.
