The Professional Rapid Online (PRO) Chess League will see a magnificent final, with world number one Magnus Carlsen and world number two Wesley So leading their teams.
The final, on Sunday 26 March at 10 a.m. PDT (6 p.m. CET), will be played between the Norway Gnomes and the St. Louis Arch Bishops, who both won an epic semifinal on Saturday.

On Saturday both the St. Louis Arch Bishops vs the Montreal ChessBrahs match and the Norway Gnomes vs the Stockholm Snowballs encounter went into tiebreaks, after the rapid play had ended in 8-8. After a total of 7.5 hours of play, the finalists were known.
