Mar-17-06  BIDMONFA: Arman Pashikian


Jun-05-06  ARTIN: Apparently this is the guy who came up with the novelty that Aronian used against Sokolov in the 37th Olympiad.
Jan-26-09  arsen387: Pashikian won the Armenian Championship this year, which means that he'll be the 5th player in Armenian National Team in 2009 (after Aronian, Akopian, Sargissian, Petrosian). Gaining 8.5/13 with Kotanjian, he became the champion by tiebreaks. Congrats to Arman, my prediction is that very soon he'll be amongst the elite in chess world
Feb-23-09  Davolni: WOW. Pashikyan is having a hell of a tournament, with a second place in Aeroflot!!!

Good luck to him in the rest of the tournament!

Aug-07-09  Vakus: Pashikian - winner of Lake Sevan 2009.
2700 is sooo close.

Lake Sevan 2009:

Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: Pashikian is credited with finding the exchange sacrifice Aronian used today on Giri A Giri vs Aronian, 2012

Part of its appeal to Aronian was that engines did not see that it was good, but he could see a clear plan for Black, and only found plans for White after extensive work with the computer.

So Pashikian found a doubly good novelty, one that has merit on its own, and one that is unlikely to have been studied by players of the White pieces because the engines don't give it a plus evaluation.
