Big Rating Jumps, Five Perfect Scores at Sunday Action Quads

On February 18, 2024, the Charlotte Chess Center hosted the 42nd edition of our weekly Sunday Action Quads event. SAQ is a scholastic quads tournament held every Sunday at the Main/South location. This tournament drew 30 players across seven sections, including a six player Quad G.

The following players finished in first place in their respective quads:

Quad A: Benjamin Raz (2 points)

Quad B: Neil Harit (3 points)

Quad C: Grant Jones (3 points)

Quad D: Joel Kindy (3 points)

Quad E: Three-way tie between Anirudh Prasanna, Carter Hahn, Sudeeksha Shashidhar (2 points)

Quad F: Gabriel Williams (3 points)

Quad G (six player "small swiss"): Daniel Rubanenko (3 points)

All five of our 3/3 scorers (Neil Harit, Grant Jones, Joel Kindy, Gabriel Williams, and Daniel Rubanenko) achieved new peak USCF ratings as well! 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 25!
