In 2000 at the 34th Chess Olympiad in Istanbul Turkey, GM Kacheishvili’s Georgian Olympiad Team (including Zurab Azmaiparashvili, Giorgi Giorgadze, Zurab Sturua, Tamaz Gelashvili, and Baadar Jobava) placed 6th out of a total of 126 teams representing 124 nations in the Open section of the event, a truly remarkable outcome for the team. GM Kacheishvili represented New York in The United States Chess League in its fifth season in 2009. The Championship Match was contested by New York and Miami, with New York ultimately winning in the blitz tiebreaker. Game of the Year honors went to Kacheishvili for his win over GM Josh Friedel of San Francisco. In 2012, he tied for 2nd-8th place in the 40th Annual World Open held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that year with Alexander Evdokimov, Marc Tyler Arnold, Yury Shulman, Ray Robson, Wesley So, and Aleksander Lenderman.
