QUAD FORMAT: The HCC will conduct a US Chess rated quad tournament open to all adult players ages 13+, as well as players under 13 who have a USCF rating of 700+. Quads, which group players by their skill level, are a great way to ensure closer matchups for a more fun and competitive challenge. This tournament provides an opportunity to play three regular rated games in one evening.
TIME CONTROL: G/25, d5. Each player receives 25 minutes, plus a 5 second delay each move, to complete each game
HOW IT WORKS: Players must register in advance. Each player will play three USCF rated games with other members in their quad of four. Tournament is limited to the first 36 players who register. Entries are first registered, first served. Quads are open to all adult players ages 13 and older. (Players under 13 who have a USCF rating of 700+ are also eligible to participate). Scholastic players should also see our monthly Scholastic Tournaments which are open to all students (K-12) of all rating levels.
