Team Liquid ran the table Saturday and booked to win the group stage and easily advance to the semifinals in the $250,000 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles.

Playing at the HD Buttercup Building in downtown L.A., six teams faced off over seven rounds of round-robin play. When Team Liquid took down Renegades 16-11 on Vertigo in Round 7, the team capped its 5-0 run.

FaZe Clan (3-2), NRG Esports (2-2-1) and Cloud9 (1-2-2) also made the semis. Cloud9 booked its spot in the final round, as its 15-15 draw with NRG on Nuke combined with FaZe beating MIBR 16-14 on Inferno lifted Cloud 9 just above MIBR (1-3-1). The two tied in their matchup, 15-15 on Mirage in Round 3.

Team Liquid will face Cloud9 in one semifinal and FaZe Clan plays NRG Esports in the other. Both semis, as well as the grand final, are Sunday. All playoff matches are best of three.

Between the semifinals and the grand final, the event will host the Pro Standoff. The bonus showmatch will feature five 1-on-1 duels, with the first player to seven kills winning each matchup. The winner will take home $20,000.
