  Penguincw: Congratz to Nisha Mohota for barely winning the 2014 Indian Women's National Challengers. I said "barely" because entering the final round, she was tied with Vijayalaksmi Subbaraman with 8.5/10, but trailed the tiebreak system. However, both of them won their last round game, and Mohota came up on top.
