Sydney Open Winner: Ben Phillips!

2023 Sydney Open Winner Ben Phillips
2023 Sydney Open runnerup Steve Clarry
2023 Sydney Open 3rd Ian Dunstan and 4th Robbie Soloman

On Saturday May 20th Sydney Backgammoners hosted the 2023 Sydney Open Backgammon Tournament at the North Ryde RSL. We had 37 entrants with 8 entering the optional Side Pool.

The event was hugely successful both in format and in its organisation. The tournament consisted of four Swiss-style rounds to 9 points followed by a decider round for the top two scorers, Ben Phillips and Steve Clarry. Ben was crowned 2023 Sydney Backgammon Champion and seems to be making a habit of it, being last year’s winner also. 3rd place went to Ian Dunstan and 4th place to Robby Solomon.
