With a 7-5 lead entering the final round, the Saint Louis Arch Bishops looked destined to claim victory over their crosstown rivals, the Webster Windmills, but a disastrous final round allowed the Windmills a 3-1 score and a match tie. Oddly, the weak point in the Arch Bishops lineup proved to be 2017 runner-up in the World Rapid Championship, Vladimir Fedoseev. Scoring only 2/4, his underperformance on board one was critical.

In the final game, Fedoseev missed a brilliant resource which would have likely sealed the match victory for the Arch Bishops.
