Greetings fellow PRO Chess League fans, and welcome to the playoffs!

You heard it here, folks! And I'd just like to point out that I called almost all of this back in Week 1 (https://www.chess.com/blog/AlexanderKing/2017-pro-chess-league-alex-king-s-picks-for-week-1), where my picks for the Final Four were Riga, Marseilles, Montreal, and St. Louis, and my pick for League Champion was St. Louis.
(Of course I reserve the right, if by some travesty my bracket happens to be wrong, to alter my weekly predictions for subsequent playoff matchups...)
See you tomorrow!
