2021 Monte Carlo Satellite Registration

Tournament Details and Registration for New Players


The 2021 Monte Carlo Satellite will run from June 3 - July 10, 2021 on Backgammon Galaxy. All events may be found on our tournament calendar.

We will run 4 brackets of 8 players each. As soon as an 8-player bracket is full, we will draw pairings and email all participants. Each round must be completed within 3 days. Use the Schedule Match form to contact your opponent and confirm a date and time to complete your 11 point match. ONLY the match WINNER reports his or her win via the Report Win form.

Winners of each of the 4 brackets will be automatically registered into the 2021 Monte Carlo Satellite Playoff. Players may win up to two brackets of 8. Any player who wins two brackets will be guaranteed prize money and a spot in the final. The playoff winner will receive their choice of either Championship Division entry fee at a €1200 value OR may opt for a $1600 cash payout. The losing finalist will receive $300. Losing semi-finalists receive 1-year AP Level I memberships or extensions of their current memberships. If either finalist is not an AP member, $10 will be deducted from their winnings and applied toward a 1-year Level I membership.

Ace Point membership is required for entry. New players may join for FREE here: AP Level I Membership. A special coupon code allows free membership for 90 days from signup. Rakes for prize pools and side pools will be applied according to AP membership level.
