USCF-rated Monthly Quick Tournament!

City Creek Chess is happy to announce that we host USCF-rated Quick Tournaments on the last Wednesday of each month! We’ll be hosting these tournaments primarily in a Quad format with three, G/15 d/3, rounds per quad.

Tournament Details:
When: last Wednesday of each month @ 7PM

Quad Details:
A Quad is a four-player round-robin tournament where everyone will be divided into groups of four
players of similar ratings, then they will play three rounds within that group to declare the overall
winner.

Time Control: G/15; d/3 Rounds: three

Schedule: Pairings: 7pm; Round one: 7:10pm; Round two: 7:45pm; Round three: 8:20pm
Variations (Swiss section):

If quads are paired and one to three players remain who have not been paired in a quad, we may
add them to the last quad paired and change to a Swiss System tournament format (See 27. Swiss
Tournament in rule book).

Tiebreaks:
Ties for prizes will first:

  1. Be divided equally, if possible, amongst the players eligible for their prize.
  2. If the prize cannot be divided equally amongst the players, then ties will be broken using USCF
    tiebreak rules (34F for quads; 34E in a Swiss section).

Registration Deadline:
Registration ends by 11:59PM the Tuesday before the tournament. Exceptions may be made to
prevent BYEs. Please reach out if you’re unsure if you’ve been registered.
