MARCH 20, 2021 - ICA QUADS REPORT

We welcomed back many players this week to our Super Saturday Quads on March 20th! A big thank you to everybody who came to play! Check out the results: http://icanj.net/allresults.php?rid=1094

Now for the highlights:

Over 1000 Section 1 Audrey was the winner with 2.5 points. She raced ahead in the tournament by winning her first two games, and then needed only a draw in the last game to secure victory. Her win over Aaron was crazy, it involved an exchange sacrifice and many pawn storms, and it earned her the game of the week: https://www.chess.com/live/game/10003374715. Nicely done!


Over 1000 Section 2 Brian returned to win yet another tournament with a perfect score. His sharp combinations were his key to winning all three games. Once again, excellent job!


Over 1000 Section 3 The victor, with a perfect 3/3 performance was Albert S. He won this section despite having to play black twice. What distinguished him this time was the ability to gain an advantage out of tight or equal situations. Congratulations Albert!


Under 1000 Section 1 This section gave us an exciting tournament full of interesting games. In the end, Sophia was the winner, with an impressive 2.5/3 points! She drew against second place Geoffrey, but won the other two games thanks to deadl, game-ending knight forks of the king and queen. Great job Sophia!
