Four Perfect Scores, Rare Four-Way Tie at Sunday Action Quads

The Charlotte Chess Center hosted Sunday Action Quads at the CCC Main/South location on February 11, 2024. SAQ is a three-round USCF-rated tournament open to all scholastic players. A total of 34 players came to play this time, forming eight quads, one of which was a six player "small swiss."


Congratulations to the following players for winning their respective quads:


Quad A: Shreyas Karki (2 points)

Quad B: Ranveer Sachdeva (2.5 points)

Quad C: Advik Mani (3 points)

Quad D: Three-way tie between Arin Samanta, Reyansh Mayank. and Caiden Deadwyler (2 points)

Quad E: Four-way tie! (see below)

Quad F: Rishaan Gadde (3 points)

Quad G: Aaradhya Varanasi (3 points)

Quad H (six player "small swiss"): Maximilian Wei (3 points)


Advik Mani has now posted a perfect score in SAQ twice in a row! Our other perfect scores were Rishaan Gadde, Aaradhya Varanasi, and Maximilian Wei.


One of the most notable results in this tournament was the rare four-way tie in Quad E. This didn't happen in any CCC quad event in all of January, but finally took place in the top quad of WAQ just last week (read all about that tournament here). In this edition of Sunday Action Quads, Carter Hahn, Gabriel Williams, Ethan Boyd, and Evan Chen all entered the last round with one point out of two, and both games in the last round were drawn. Each player finished with 1.5/3.


A reminder that all perfect scorers in grades K-8 have 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 February 18!
