After blundering a pair of pawns on separate occasions, WGM Tatev Abrahamyan was determined to still convert a rook-and-pawn endgame in round one of the 2013 U.S. Women's Championship. After initially getting upset at herself for simply hanging a pawn and missing a simple tactic for the other one, she never lets her guard down after that, and still converts by using a beautiful zugzwang. The inauspicious start still led a solid third-place finish.
