And Arabidze qualifies for the <2014 FIDE WOMEN'S KNOCKOUT CHAMPIONSHIP> by finishing 10th on tiebreak at the European Individual Women's Championship (2013).

The top 14 finishers made it.

  Penguincw: 16 players remaining, and Meri Arabidze is the lowest rated player remaining at FIDE Women's World Chess Championship (2015), being the 45th seed rated 2374.

In Round 1 against 20th seed Elisabeth Paehtz, the first 4 games were all drawn before Arabidze won the next 2 games to knock out the only German in the tournament.

Then, in Round 2, against 52nd seed Yaniet Marrero Lopez, she beat the only Cuban in the tournament 1 1/2-1/2 to advance to the Sweet 16!

She will now have to face 4th seed Viktorija Cmilyte (who is the only Lithuanian) in the 3rd round.

FWIW: This "only" trend will end should she make it to the 4th round, as Kosteniuk is among 10 Russians and Harika is among 3 Indians in the tournament.

  Penguincw: And Arabidze's cinderella run comes to an end. She actually beat 4th seed Cmilyte 2 1/2-1 1/2, winning the decisive game with black! However, she lost to 12th seed Dronavalli Harika 1 1/2-1/2 to "finally" bow out of the tournament. Still, making a run all the way to the Elite 8 is impressive (I honestly didn't think she would even make it out of the first round). Kinda a tough break, as her only lost in 14 games ends her tournament. She was the 5th highest rated Georgian out of 6 that participated, and was the last one remaining.

Despite all that, she still got a solid +7.8 rating points to rise to 2382.
