The Championships comprise the following events:
• Zimmermann Cup. A great Teams Tournament of one week, with three days of qualification (swiss movement) and four days of Knock-outs… And of course, an impressive prize-list!
• FMB Trophy. For those who didn’t qualify for the Knock-out phase of the Zimmermann Cup, or for those who just wish to play a great team event, two days of qualification and one day of finals… and of course, a great prize-list!
Apart from the prizes, EBL Masterpoints will be awarded for both events.
Special prizes for best Women, Seniors and U26. The ZC and FMB Trophy prizes are cumulative but the special prizes are not. The prize purse may be increased if the participation is bigger than expected.
