  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.

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.

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
Sep-01-16  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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armen...

She spent thousands of dollars having a research group determine the most disturbing possible hair color and then panicked when she discovered her opponent was color-blind!
