Feb-17-05  Rimrock: <MidnightDuffer> You are correct. There is a large Armenian population in SoCal, especially in the city of Glendale.
Feb-17-05  iron maiden: She actually tied Rusa on points, but got crushed 0-2 in the rapid playoffs.

Jan-13-07  BIDMONFA: Tatev Abrahamyan


May-23-08  swordfish: Equal third in US Women's Championship, with losses to both co-champs Zatonskih and Krush.
Oct-14-09  SirChrislov: She lives next to my town, in Glendale. I live in the community known as Cypress Park. Glendale is a heavily populated Armenian community, known as "the jewel city", also home of GM Varuzhan Akobian. if you're ever in Glendale, and feel like spending a pretty penny, be sure to visit the outdoor mall known as the Americana and dont forget to stop at Frida's Mexican grill.
Jan-13-10  swordfish: Happy B-day, WIM Tatev Abrahamyan. Hope to see you at the Chicago Open in May.
Jan-13-10  SirChrislov: Happy birthday Abrahamyan and hello Akobian, Khachian and all the people of Glendale. Best of wishes to you for 2010.

  keypusher: She played the Evans in the first round of the U.S. championship, so she is OK with me.

  FSR: If she were a president, she'd be Babrahamyan Lincoln.

May-03-13  waustad: In her bio on the US Chesschamps site they claim that she was impressed by Judit Polgar, "the only woman in the tournament," in the 1996 men's olympiad. While it is easy to be impressed by Judit Polgar, a quick look at olimpbase found Pia Cramling playing second board for Sweden. Maybe she wasn't playing the day Ms. Abrahamyan attended.
May-29-14  ketchuplover: Kudos to Tatev on winning the 2014 USCF female player of the year award
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: chessbase says that she is a pescatarian.

  iking: this year, a new crown for her
Apr-25-16  dangerhump: Poor Tatev, a heart breaking loss in final round costs her the US Women's title
Aug-31-16  dangerhump: Anyone know why she isn't playing in the Olympiad? She would have been a very strong 4th board
Premium Chessgames Member
  sonia91: <dangerhump: Anyone know why she isn't playing in the Olympiad? She would have been a very strong 4th board> She is Armenian-born and the Olympiad is in Baku, Azerbaijan; see
