For players in their first tournament or who are rated under 1600
This is a US Chess rated quads style chess tournament. Each player is placed in a group of 4 players according to their age and rating. Each participant then plays one game against each of the other three players in their group. At the end of the third game, the winner of each group receives a trophy.
For new players and players rated under 1000, quads typically finish in about 60-90 minutes. For players rated over 1000, quads typically take 90-120 minutes. Quads can take as long as 3 hours, although that is rare.
