The trend of surprise endings for Team SoloMid games continues on Day 2 of the second week of NA LCS.
During their first series of the week TSM was surprised by a teleport backdoor by Chan-ho “Ssumday” Kim to finish off their Nexus. On Day 2, TSM were the perpetrators of the surprise against Team Liquid:

Team SoloMid held the lead comfortably for most of the game, but when Team Liquid attempted to get back into the game with a quick take of the Elder Dragon, TSM saw a moment to finish the game. Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg led his team into the blue side of Team Liquid’s jungle before Realm warping himself and two other members of his team into the Team Liquid base, catching Liquid completely off-guard and finishing the game.
This wasn’t the first time in the game that Bjergsen made quick use of his Realm Warp for objectives however, as a little earlier he used it to help his team escape the enemy base straight into the Baron pit. This allowed TSM to kill the Baron before Team Liquid could contest, furthering the TSM lead.
