The Armenia Eagles are champions. Today they secured bragging rights as the top seed in the Eastern Division heading into the playoffs after taking down the Mumbai Movers.

Coming into today's match, both teams had already guaranteed a playoff appearance. Today it was all about the glory (and playoff seeding). Armenia's team performance was quite balanced with quality scores coming from board-three GM Karen Grigoryan and board-four CM Artak Manukyan.

Check out this absolutely wild round one battle between GM Samvel Ter-Sahakyan and IM Harshit Raja. A poisoned pawn Sicilian goes off the rails, which may not be that big of a surprise!
