Saturday G/45 Quads


Today’s four quads saw many exciting games and finishes. NM Nicolas Checa won the first quad with a convincing 3/3 score. Nobody could claim an advantage in the second quad as three players, Kenneth Young, Scott Buono and Christian Baccay all tied with 2/3 each. In a very closely contested quad where all of the players were separated by no more than 75 points, it was Rich Tanenbaum and Vincent Xu who shared the top honors with 2/3 each. The final quad had yet another tie, this time between CCFC veterans Brent McCreesh and Al Pinto. McCreesh’s rating edges closer to 1300 while Pinto reached a new all time rating high!

Finally, today's tournament also featured a special G/90 double round robin quad between four incredibly talented youths preparing to compete at the nationals. The quad is taking place over over three weekends. In today's first round top seeded Zachary Tanenbaum defeated Max Lu 2-0 while Dennis Li upset Yoon-Young Kim by also winning both games. Stay tuned for their results from next week!
