A total of 34 players were present at the 17th Geneva Open Backgammon Tournament, including participants from France, England, German-speaking Switzerland, and local players. A delightful dinner buffet welcomed the players on Friday evening, marking the beginning of this tournament that combined skill and endurance.
As the rounds progressed, players gradually lost their three lives, and on Sunday, only eight resilient survivors gathered for the final showdown. The finalists were Olivier Evard, Alexandre Ben Lassin, Thibaud Thompson, Etienne Denis, Alain de Foucher, Almir Vajzovic, Andres Staedeli, and Bernard Madrennes.
In the ultimate face-off, Etienne Denis, with a flawless performance and all three lives intact, went head-to-head against Alain de Foucher, who had only one life remaining. The first final commenced around 3:30 PM, and after three thrilling matches, Alain achieved a remarkable feat by securing victory at 8:30 PM, becoming the champion of the 17th Geneva Open Backgammon Tournament. Hats off to Mr. de Foucher for this well-deserved triumph."

Une ambiance festive lors du 7-ème Open de Genève qui s'est déroulé dans les meilleures conditions.

Nous regrettons cependant l'absence de joueurs préstigieux du club comme Alexandre Ben Lassin, Denis Etienne, Fabrice Liardet, Richard Gerber, Patrick Didisheim ainsi que de nos amis
suisse-allemands Nils Baumann et Marcel Liechti qui ont été présents lors des précédents tournois.

La jeune junior Manon Detraz remporte le prix du "Fair Play".
