CSGO: Team Liquid Wins IEM Chicago 3-0 Over ENCE

Team Liquid dismantled ENCE in a 3-0 rout to take home the trophy at IEM Chicago.

North American organization Team Liquid added another trophy to their case last night as they took down Finish team ENCE in a best-of-five. 

TL dominated ENCE on the first two maps of Overpass and Nuke. ENCE was only able to post five total rounds between both maps, ending Overpass 2-16 and Nuke 3-16.

Map 3, Inferno, was a much closer affair, but Nicholas “nitr0” Canella and co. were eventually able to put ENCE away 16-14.

This is the eighth tournament in a row that Liquid has won. With their win at ESL One Cologne earlier this month, Team Liquid passed the 4-event threshold required to win the Intel Grand Slam and picked up a bonus $1M USD in prize money.

It hasn't been close, either. Team Liquid hasn't lost a match since June 13. They've consistently won best-of-ones, best-of-threes, and best-of-five grand finals with ease.

The next time fans will see Team Liquid will be at the CSGO Starladder Berlin Major that runs for two weeks from August 28 to September 8.
