Meri Arabidze: I prefer rapid chess to classical
IMG 4986The young Georgian became the main sensation of the Women's World Championship, advancing to the Quarterfinals after defeating the renowned Viktoria Cmilyte. It is time to get to know Meri Arabidze.

Eteri Kublashvili: Meri, tell us about you: where are you from, when you started playing chess, who is your trainer?

Meri Arabizde: I was born in Samtredia, but now live in Kutaisi. Play chess since I was 6 years old. I am a three-time European champion U10, U12, and U14, and a three-time World Champion – U14, U16, and U18. Alexander Arsenidze is my trainer for the last seven years, and he is helping me at this championship, as well as Khvicha Supatashvili.
