Tatev Abrahamyan is the 4th highest ranked woman in the U.S. and a Women's Olympiad Team member. In addition to 2018, she represented the U.S. in 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014. Abrahamyan is consistently a top contender at the U.S. Women's Championship, finishing as the runner-up on four occasions: 2016, 2014, 2011, and 2004. She has also earned three IM norms and will obtain the title as soon as she crosses 2400 FIDE. Abrahamyan has a highly dynamic and tactical style, and she excels in dangerous attacking positions. Tatev’s victory over Super-GM Wang Yue in the 2018 PRO Chess League is a great example of this:
