  Penguincw: Congrats to IM Kannappan Priyadharshan (2462) for his performance at the Mumbai Open. The IM was doing great, as he was actually tied for the lead heading into the last round, but lost to finish with 7/10 (+5,-1,=4) and 7th place (the highest for a non-GM).

No GM norm here, as his TPR was only 2516 (might've been 2607 if he beat 7th seed and eventual winner GM Martyn Kravtsiv (2589) with black in the last round), but he did gain 9.8 points.
