Nationals Prep

Dear G & T Chess Families,


We have three final weeks before Grade Nationals (Dec 4th - 6th) The G & T Quads are a great Nationals prep opportunity as it combines slow, thoughtful play along with very close USCF ratings, making for competitive competition.


Quad USCF Ratings On Average:


  • Quad 1 - 1900 +
  • Quad 2 - 1800 +
  • Quad 3 - 1700 +
  • Quad 4 - 1600 +
  • Quad 5 - 1500 +
  • Quad 6 - 1400 +
  • Quad 7 - 1300 +
  • Quad 8 - 1200 +
  • Quad 9 and Up - 1000 - 1200


We encourage you to use it as a nationals prep opportunity, as almost all of our players participating will be attending nationals as well.
