Details have been announced for the 2016 Euros, hopefully we'll see a French team again
We’d like to welcome you all Norrköping, Sweden on the 21-22 of May 2016 for the EEC 2016!
We will continue to build on the format used by previous two tournaments. It will be a team tournament and each team should have 4 members.
We will be able to arrange for up to 8 teams to come to the event (e.g. 32 players or 16 tables). Games will be arranged between teams so for instance during round 1 all four players in team UK will be matched against the players from team Norway etc. Within the teams players will be matched according to swiss.
Each country’s community decide on how to choose these teams as they see fit as previously. Teams from different countries will have precedence, however a country may bring more than one team if all 8 posistion are not taken by actual countries (a likely event based on attendance previous years). We reserve the right to take the first dual team place for Sweden, if any, with us having the home turf. ;D
Five rounds will be played over two days. Three on the Saturday and two on the Sunday. Each round will be 3 hours maximum, in addition after 2h 30 min a call will go out to mark the time and players are asked to not start any new game turns. A scedule for the event can be seen below.
