MCCL Championship Warm-up Quads (2-24)

Starts: Feb 24, 2024 @ 9:15 AM


 Saturday, February 24, 2024 

 Mill Creek Elementary School 

 847 Mill Road, Madison, AL 35758 


This rated, round-robin chess event is intended for scholastic chess players who plan to compete in the 2024 City Chess Championship (March 1 - 2 at JCHS) and/or the 2024 State Scholastic Chess Championship (March 23-24 at Pike Road Elementary, Pike Road, Alabama).


Players who register will be divided into groups of four (a “quad”) so that they can play a three-round tournament against the other players in their quad. The quads will be formed starting at the highest rated player and working down so that each group is four players who are relatively close to each other in rating.  There are no byes, and because of the round-robin format, you should not register unless you plan to play all three rounds. (If a player drops out, the round-robin cannot be completed.) The benefit of this format is that each of the three games is likely to be competitive.

* Please make your own arrangements for lunch. There are breaks

between rounds that allow time for players to eat.

Format: Four player round-robin

Time control: G/45; d5

Schedule: Player meeting at 9:15 am

                        Round 1 at 9:30 am

                        Round 2 at 11:45 am

                        Round 3 at 1:45 pm

Awards:     The winner of each quad will receive a medal. There are no cash prizes or trophies. The real benefit of this event is good, competitive chess before the upcoming championships.


Register at $10 for MCCL members; $15 for non-members. Registration will be closed at any time after Wednesday, February 21st when the number of players is divisible by 4.
