Evanston Unrated Quick Quads
Levy Activity Center, 300 Dodge Avenue, Evanston, IL. 3 round Quads, G/26 plus 3 second delay. NOT USCF RATED. Digital clocks required.
This is our experimental tournament. It's not exactly a controlled experiment, since we're trying two things at once:
- "Quick quads" — a format that allows players to fit in three games and still have Saturday afternoon free.
- "Unrated" — Have you never been USCF rated? Have you never played a tournament? Does your child play, and you'd like to try it out yourself? Were you rated in the past, but haven't played a tournament in years? This is your chance to test (or re-test) the waters of tournament play, without having to make a major investment in time and cash. We will play in regular tournament conditions, and we will follow USCF rules.
Format: Published USCF Regular Rating (or tournament director's estimate, if the player is not USCF-rated) determines player seeding. Players will be grouped into 4-player groups starting with the top-seeded player. If the bottom group has between 5 and 7 players, the bottom group will be paired as a Swiss section. No byes. Please come to play three rounds. Schedule: Registration from 9:00 to 9:30 am. Registration/sign-in for pre-registered players will close and quads will be formed at 9:30 a.m. sharp. First Round 9:45 am, rest of rounds ASAP (estimated ending time 1:00 p.m.). Entries: Entry fee $5; masters and experts are free, please pay cash (no checks) at the door. Your Prize: Three quick games, and the rest of your afternoon free to spend as you please. Please reserve your spot by sending Name, USCF number (if you have one), phone number to, enter@EvanstonChess.org. Other information: Junior players (under fourteen years) rated 900+ are welcome, and must be accompanied by a parent throughout the day. Sorry, but we do not accept junior players rated under 900. Bring clocks. -- Wheelchair accessible. No Smoking. For more information: www.evanstonchess.org
