|Feb-18-06|| ||Karpova: This guy looks quite scary
|Feb-18-06|| ||Appaz: Agree! I would not like to meet that man, alone in a dark, half-open file :)|
He did very well in Aeroflot Open A1: from his 89th ranking, he was placed 18th with 5.5 points and a TPR of 2698.
|Jun-18-07|| ||BIDMONFA: Nikola Sedlak|

|Jan-11-11|| ||laskereshevsky: The CG Biography said:
(born Dec-13-1983) Yugoslavia (citizen of Serbia)
GM Sedlak won the 3rd European Union Individual Chess Championship in 2007.>......
Comgratulation to Him for the Victory in the tournament.
But technically, not being a Comunitary citizen, He's not the European Union Champion's....
By reading the Bio, this point is not very clear..... Isnt it?!
|Dec-13-11|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday!|
|Dec-13-11|| ||HeMateMe: Happy Sweet Sixteen! LOL!|
|Aug-14-14|| ||ketchuplover: Kudos on your board 4 gold medal in Tromso!|
|Aug-17-14|| ||donjova: Congratulations to Nikola Sedlak for winning the Olympic gold on Board 4.|
Chess Olympiad (2014)/Nikola Sedlak
Btw, he also narrowly missed winning the Board 4 medal in the Istanbul Olympiad (he was 4th in rankings for that board).
|Dec-13-18|| ||Nosnibor: How can this player have a grading of 2608 which is higher than his late fellow chess player,namely Gligoric who only reached 2600? With respect this player is not in the same class as Gligoric.|
|Dec-13-18|| ||Breunor: Nosnibor, it is tremendous rating inflation. Be wary of comparing ratings of people from different eras, it works better in comparing to contemporaries.|
So for example Petrosian's highest rating in the database is 2660 but he was a top three player in the world for quite a while.
