It happened: the first Fair Backgammon Duplicated Team Tournament was promoted in Yalta, Crimea, Ukraine from 1st till 5th October 2008.
There were three teams from three cities: Moscow, Kharkov and Kiev.
Each team had four players: two who played long gammon and another two who played backgammon.
There was one round robin tournament for long gammon, and two rounds for backgammon.
Each match consisting of four games was played separately on special sensor boards "BEZMA" on two tables - OPEN and CLOSED (like in bridge) - with duplicated rolls, which were transferred on each table thanks sensor boards “BEZMA” and special software program "BEZMA Tournament". Normally there should be two separate playing rooms with following nameplates: OPEN - spectators are allowed to watch the game and CLOSED - spectators are not allowed to watch the game.
