The Minnesota Blizzard and Pittsburgh Pawngrabbers were the only two undefeated teams left in the PRO Chess League prior to this match, other undefeated teams having lost earlier in the day.

After the match, it is only the Minnesota Blizzard who have survived the difficult gamut, reaching that coveted 3-0 score. It's been a remarkable run for the Blizzard who struggled last year and needed to win the fan vote to make it into the 2018 season. America's newest GM, Andrew Tang has been critical to their success.

Despite the Blizzard's success, we can't resist presenting a game from America's youngest GM on the opposing team. 14-year-old GM Awonder Liang and his opponent, IM Sean Nagle, both scored a perfect 4/4 last week, but this week it was Liang who was victorious in a magnificent Tal-esque attacking game.
