This weekend, I talked to Jürgen Olowski, the winner of the first Gibraltar Open 2016, who has already booked his flight to Nordic Open 2016, played in Copenhagen April 23th to 28th.

As the winner of the first Gibraltar Open 2016, Jürgen received a free hotel room at Nordic Open 2016, sponsored by the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel and the main sponsor of Nordic Open 2016, Danske Spil.

During Nordic Open 2016, you can find Danske Spil on site, where they will offer attractive bets on all players who have signed up for the Championship division in advance.(For more information, please see

We are happy to announce, that Hotel Merit Park will also sponsor a free hotel stay for the winner of Nordic Open 2016, i.e. the winner of Nordic Open will get a free room at the Hotel Merit Park for the 4th Merit Open 2016 in Cyprus (2nd-6th November 2016).  Furthermore, the Nordic Open Championship winner will also receive a free entry to the Backgammon World Wide Trophy in Tbilitze in Georgia, April 27th to May 1st. (For more detailed information about the tournament, please see This is sponsored by the Europe-Bet and the Georgian Backgammon Club.

On top of this, Jeoffrey Parker has offered a very unique board to the Championship winner (see more on

Nordic Open is not, and should not, be just about the Championship division. We are therefore happy to announce that the winner of the Advanced division will receive a free entry to Dubrovnic Open, which will be played 7th-9th October 2016 in beautiful Croatia.

Finally we invite all winners of the four main divisions to play at Nordic Open again in 2017, by adding a free entry to the next higher division in 2017. This means that the winner of Beginner 2016 gets a free entry to Intermediate in 2017. The winner of Intermediate receives a free entry to Advanced 2017. The Advanced winner gets an entry to Championship 2017 and finally the winner of Championship receives a free entry to Championship 2017 as well. We wish to thank our sponsor Danske Spil for making this possible.

My great staff and I look forward to welcoming all of you at Nordic Open 2016.
