Dennis Monokroussos in 2019 Pro Chess League

A summary of week one, here. Featured players including America's Big Three (Caruana, So, and Nakamura), Ding Liren, and MVL. Carlsen didn't play, at least this time - I'm guessing it's because he's playing in Wijk aan Zee. So is Ding, you say; and rightly, but none of the other players mentioned above are participating. (More on that shortly, in a coming post.)

Anyhow, do check out the link above, which gives a full report and a link to download the games in PGN format.
