37-year-old Armenian chess player Lilit Mkrtchian took part in the Schachsommer 2019 (Chess Summer 2019) international tournament in Dresden, Germany.

Sixty-two male players and only two female players – Lilit Mkrtchian (Armenian) and Maria Efimenko (Ukraine) – took part in the tournament.

Unlike Maria, Lilit was able to leave almost all the male players behind and win the third place, scoring 7 of 9.

Lilit has confirmed her title. She is not only a Grand Master among women, but also an International Master among both sexes.

One Armenian woman proved stronger than 60 male players!
