46 Players, 11 Quads at CCC SAQ

On January 21, 2024, the Charlotte Chess Center hosted the 38th edition of our weekly Sunday Action Quads at the CCC Main/South location. SAQ is a three-round USCF-rated event held every Sunday, open to all scholastic players.

This time around, a total of 46 players showed up across eleven quads. Here are the quad winners:

Quad A: Benjamin Raz (3 points)

Quad B: Shreyas Karki (3 points)

Quad C: Siddhant Gutgutia (2.5 points)

Quad D: Joel Kindy (2.5 points)

Quad E: Yisen Dong (3 points)

Quad F: Anirudh Prasanna (3 points)

Quad G: Bhavin Challa (3 points)

Quad H: Gabrielle Zhang (3 points)

Quad I: Benjamin Maniotis and Charles Barr (2 points)

Quad J: Kaushal Dalal (3 points)

Quad K (six players): Carter Hahn (3 points)

By winning clear first in Quad E for two weeks in a row, Yisen Dong's rating has risen from 775 to over 1000 in just two events! Other players gaining over 100 USCF rating points were Shreyas Karki, Anirudh Prasanna, Bhavin Challa, Gabrielle Zhang, and Kaushal Dalal.

Additionally, congratulations to all eight (!) of our perfect scorers, who have each now qualified for the NEW Tournament of Champions event, scheduled for May 4, 2024.

We hope to see you at the next Sunday Action Quads tournament on January 28!
