She tied for first in the 2004 U.S. Women's Chess Championship, but lost the playoff match to Rusudan Goletiani. In 2006 Abrahamyan won the Pan American under-18 girls' championship in Cuenca, Ecuador. She tied for second place with Anna Zatonskih in the 2010 U.S. Women's Championship, which was won by Irina Krush with a score of 8/9, and took second again in 2011 after drawing with Zatonskih in an "Armageddon" rapid tiebreak game (Zatonskih won the title because, as Black, she had draw odds).

Among her notable victories are two against former U.S. Champion Alexander Shabalov.
