A Quad Tournament in chess is a type of tournament format where four players compete in a round-robin style tournament. In a quad tournament, four players are paired up to play against each other in three rounds. Each player plays three games, one against the other in their quad. If there are twelve players in a tournament to play in a Quad format, the 12 players are put in order of their ratings. Then, the top 4 players (1-4) play a round-robin against each other, the next four (5-8) play a round-robin against each other, and the bottom four (9-12) play a round-robin against each other.
