Spring Quads

May 5th,

Last Saturday Grandmaster Mikheil Kekelidze as well as newcomer Arslan Otchiyev joined our Spring Quads to make the strongest quad we have held to date. Demonstrating why he is a Grandmaster, Kekelidze was in form and won all three of his games to reach his new peak rating. Arslan Otchiyev and NM Ian Harris tied with 1.5 points each.

The second section was also quite strong with three players rated close to 2000. CCFC Director Melvin Patrick was close to a nice upset against Ethan Segall, but agreed to a draw just a few moves away from the win. The champion of this section was experienced expert Hanon Russell who won all three of his games! In 2nd place was Jason Shi.
Congratulations to all of the winners and we are looking forwards to the next Spring Quads!
