Team Liquid won IEM Chicago over ENCE 3-0 Sunday securing the first championship in the Intel Grand Slam Season 3.
The North American Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team picked up right where it left off at ESL One Cologne by dominating the Finnish side in the grand final.
- Map 1: Team Liquid 16-2 ENCE (Overpass)
- Map 2: Team Liquid 16-3 ENCE (Nuke)

Team Liquid only dropped one map all tournament coming against G2 Esports in the group stage. The best CS:GO team in the world only lost double digit rounds three times all tournament in maps it won.
Team Liquid secured the first championship in Season 3 of the Intel Grand Slam. New rules were implemented after Team Liquid won Season 2 adding a new condition to the bonus $1 million. Players must either win six non-Masters level tournaments or four including one Masters level event.
The Masters level events confirmed so far include IEM Katowice, ESL One Cologne 2020 and any future Valve Major hosted by either ESL or DreamHack.
