Nana_Dzagnidze.jpgThe fourth tournament of the FIDE women's Grand Prix in Jermuk, Armenia, has ended with a decisive and dominant winner.

Nana Dzagnidze (pictured) started the event with a staggering 7.5/8 score and despite 'only' finishing with three draws in the final rounds she still won by a full 1.5 points.

It was a superb performance from the 23 year-old Georgian, who is currently ranked #17 on the official FIDE women's rankings list.

The final crosstable is below.

Top seeded Hou Yifan could only finish in the middle of the pack with 6/11.
