For K-12 players, including those playing in their first event.

This is a US Chess rated quads style chess tournament. Players will be placed into groups of four based on rating, unrated players participating in their first tournament will be grouped by age. Quads are non-elimination, and each player will play everyone in their group for a total of three games. At the end of the third game, the winner of each quad will receive a trophy, and the second place finisher will get a medal. 

For new players and players rated under 800, quads typically finish in about 60-90 minutes. For more experienced players, the event can last 90-120 minutes, and as long as 3 hours (although this is rare).
