What is Quads?
A Quad Tournament is where all players are sorted from highest rating to lowest rating
The top four highest rated players are placed in one section (a Quad),
then the following 4 highest rated players are placed in another Quad.
The four players compete in a round-robin style tournament.
Each player plays three games, one against the other in their quad.
In a regular Swiss tournament, high rated and low rated players are often paired to
play each other in the early rounds and dont face players their own
strength untill the later rounds.
With the Quads format, players will get quality games vs other
players of similar strength in every round.
