Winter Quads


This past Saturday we had a very closely contested quad. All four players were within 50 points of each other. Everything was thrown into disarray when top seeded Eric Zhang lost to fourth seed Leo Bykhovsky in the first round. Zhang recovered nicely, winning his next two games, however Bykhovsky continue to go on a tear, defeating all three opponents and winning the section with a perfect score! Daniel Rosenthal and Wendy Cummings engaged in a tough three game match. Although Daniel had a significant rating advantage, he is relatively new to tournament chess and Wendy has been improving at a steady pace. Despite three very tough fighting games, Wendy was not able to overcome the rating deficit and Daniel won all three games!
