    DCC attendance continues to grow. I began writing these monthly DCC reports with the DCC Year End Report in 2014. Quoting myself, "...with the relatively low average turnout of 18 players...". Then in the DCC January 2019 Report, i have this: "...For the first time we averaged over 60 players for each round." Thus, I can't tell you how pleased I am to report that...

    "...  Alice Lee would face Tatev Abrahamyan and set up an incredible confrontation."

    Quoting John Brezina: "After a nearly two year absence of spectators at chess tournaments, I’m thrilled to be back in St. Louis covering a new tournament for the best players in America.
