Big Turnout, Big Gains at CCC Wednesday Action Quads

It's not every day you see an event that requires a "Quad L" section! The Charlotte Chess Center hosted Wednesday Action Quads at the Main/South location on January 24, 2024, featuring 48 players gathering for three rounds of USCF-rated chess.

The top-quad winner was Krishnan Warrier, who scored 2.5/3 and made a last round draw to clinch clear first place. Warrier was also our highest-rated participant this week, entering at 2076 USCF.

We had some huge rating gainers this week, including Trishona Kumar (1460 -> 1566), Nishita Jaikumar (1347 -> 1430), Ritvik Kumar (1048 -> 1185), and Ankit Biswas (1038 -> 1151).

In Quad C, CCC Coach Jay Garrison gained 82 rating points of his own with a perfect 3/3 score, while Andrew Horton gained 85 for his perfect score in Quad D. The very most points gained by any one player was Nichol Garrison in Quad L. She added a total of 191 rating points for her 2/3 score, only losing to quad winner Imhotep Collins. It was a great evening for the Garrisons!

Here are the winners of each quad:

Quad A: Krishnan Warrier (2.5 points)

Quad B: Brian Zhang and Luke Zimmer (2.5 points)

Quad C: Jay Garrison (3 points)

Quad D: Andrew Horton (3 points)

Quad E: Trishona Kumar (3 points)

Quad F: Mukund Neema and Diksha Jaikumar (2 points)

Quad J: Ritvik Kumar (3 points)
