On August 21st, ICA welcomed players for another edition of the Super Saturday Quads. This week we had 9 sections and 11 winners.
Thanks to everyone for coming and especially our new players: Frank, Ofer, Suvedh, Lucas L., Lucas H., Ishan, Agastya, Davis, Gideon, and Girish.
Now for the games:
In Over 1000 Section 1
Frank won with a perfect score, 3/3. In his last game, Frank won by strategically using his knight to squeeze his opponent. He was not up to any material, but he made the win look easy. For a great game, and an even better ending, he earns this week’s game of the week. You can check out the game here.
In over 1000 Section 2
Aiden won with a neat score of 2.5/3. In his second game, he played the Evan’s Gambit that resulted in a wild miniature. Aiden’s pieces all worked together, and he mated his opponent quickly, a very nice example of attacking, showing that piece development wins games.
In Over 1000 Section 3
Mark won with a score of 2.5/3. In his last game, he needed to win to ensure first place. The game was very positional, but after opening up the position Mark found the best places for his pieces and won a pawn. After winning a pawn he was able to convert the game for the full point. Good Job
In Over 1000 Section 4
Murugan and Ido tied for 1st, both scoring 2/3 points. In the first round Murugan defeated Ido in a swift, tactical game. He brought his queen and rook to the kingside and quickly won. However, Ido did not give up. When Murugan lost his last game, Ido had the chance to tie for first and in a very tactical game, Ido won material very quickly for the win shortly after. Great Fighting Spirit!
