XI Portuguese Open & Masters 2016

This year’s Portuguese Open will be marked as “Mario Sequeira Memorial”, the well-known international backgammon traveler from Portugal who sadly passed away in the past year. We will keep his memory alive by celebrating backgammon near his residence in Portugal.

The “sunshine, beach and family” event will take place for the 11th time in a row at the Riviera Hotel**** in Carcavelos with shops, restaurants, cafés and the beach nearby.

The Portuguese Open will be a free entry tournament on Wednesday and Thursday, followed by the Portuguese Masters over the weekend. 

Various side-events will be lined up and we´ll have “farewell”-drinks on the beach after the awards ceremony and the fingerfood on Sunday.

Come and enjoy the excellent food and wines, the warm sunshine, the sandy beaches and the inexpensive and lavish lifestyle, after the Monte Carlo tournaments, and enjoy as a contrast the relaxing “backgammon holidays” among friends and with your family.
