How dare you!
She married a Scotsman, which is a different animal altogether!
Her husband is Jonathan Grant and I believe they met at an Olympiad.

|Jul-19-06|| ||chessgames.com: Happy birthday, Ketevan.
We don't usually write biographies but in this case we tried to improve it a little. She has a very impressive career, so we may have missed several major accomplishments.
Here's a great game of Ketevan's: K Arakhamia-Grant vs Kosteniuk, 2001

|Jul-19-08|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday Ketevan!|
|Dec-31-08|| ||Udit Narayan: Very strong chess player...12/12 at the 1990 olympiad speaks for itself...also nice looking lady|
|Jan-26-09|| ||Albertan: Ketevan has gained her third and final male GM norm with her performance at the 2008 Dresden Olympiad .She represented Scotland for the first time at the Olympiad where she scored her third and final GM norm. Her January 2009 rating of 2500 should give her the title (subject to official confirmation). Congratulations Ketevan!|
|Oct-03-09|| ||GrahamClayton: Arakhamia-Grant switched her allegiance to Scotland after failing to make the Georgian women's team. With her GM norm at the Dresden Olympiad, she becomes the first UK female player to gain the GM title.|

Scots are not animals!

|Feb-15-11|| ||Octavia: <Remizatorul> Thanks for all those nice pics!|
Keti also plays in the 4ncl where she plays on bd 1 & 2 ? & the frauenbundesliga. BadenBaden are leading the latter league where she plays on bd 2, 3 & 4
|Sep-19-11|| ||Octavia: Congratulations, Keti, for winning the Scottish championship once again! This time she is sole leader!|
|Mar-18-13|| ||waustad: I was reading some commentary about the OSG Baden Baden winning the championship of the Frauenbundesliga again and noted that the author was bemoaning that there should be more German players on the team. Looking at the roster: http://www.schachbund.de/SchachBL/b...
I suspect that the only native German speaker on the team who actually played this season is the Austrian Eva Moser. When they get together I wonder what language is spoken most, German, English or Russian.|
|Apr-12-13|| ||0o0o0o0o0: She is playing in the Edinburgh congress at the moment. It started tonight.|
First GM that I have ever seen in the flesh.
So, aye, I can confirm that they are actually real people :)

|Jun-17-13|| ||Octavia: Congratulations for being Scottish blitz champion & beating Mickey Adams & Arkady Naiditsch in the last 2 rds!|
