May I know the challenge format for BTS open? Thanks.

Forgive me for interrupting, but it's stated that the format is "free challenge" or SINGLE according to ISC language. It means that a player can challenge as many words as possible and no penalty shall be administered to the challenger should the word be valid.

Hope this helps!

Yes, if the word is not allowed, player takes back tiles and loses a turn. No penalty to challenger if word is allowed/valid.
Normally, this format is for students and beginners as they learn through challenging. If there is penalty, they might not challenge for fear of being penalised. How to learn , then?
