A new challenge for all you fast and furious players – This Sunday, the 26th of April, we are hosting a Speedball IMP Tournament on Bridgebig.com with a minimum of €2,000 in your prize pool! So get your energy drinks ready and shush up the kids – 48 boards in 160 minutes… Go!
Speedball, what’s different?
- You won’t be rushed badly, but you have less time per decision: 10 sec’s. Per board you will have 3.3 minutes (40 minutes per stage).
- Because there is less time, we automatically activate “more time” for you, so you won’t have to click it yourself, there will be a blue clock. Your total extra time during the tournament is 45 seconds and will increase by 5 seconds after every finished board up to a maximum of 45 seconds.
- It is an IMP-tournament! The first one on Bridge Big. So the carry-over will work differently. Your IMP’s of the previous stages will be divided by two at the start of a new stage. After this your IMP’s will accumulate with your carry-over.
Example: Your score after stage 1 is +10 IMP’s. You will start stage 2 with +5 IMP’s. If you score +12 IMP’s in your stage 2, than your score will be +17 IMP’s. Starting stage 3 with +8,5 IMP’s. This will show as +8, but your half IMP DOES count.
Earn your entry in the €10, €15 & €20 qualifiers
The €50 direct buy-in is the fastest, but not the only way to enter the tournament. You can also earn your entry by playing one of the qualifiers:
- There will be a €10 qualifier on Friday, 24 April at 7 PM (UTC) where 1 in 5 players will win an entry ticket for the Speedball tournament.
- There will be a €15 qualifier on Saturday, 25 April at 7 PM (UTC) where approximately 1 in 3 players will win an entry ticket for the Speedball tournament.
- There will be a €20 qualifier on Friday, 24 April at 6 PM (UTC) where 2 in 5 players will win an entry ticket for the Speedball tournament.
For every €50 in a qualifier prize pool there will be a ticket to the Sunday Special. And we will be rounding up to an extra ticket. The qualifiers will be an 8 board MP (%) tournament.
Hope to see you and many others in our first Sunday Special, so we can make it a succes together!
