|Yelena Dembo was born in Penza, Russia. At only 3 years and 9 months, she played chess in an under-13 tournament and became rated. When she was 7, her family emigrated to Israel, where her parents opened a chess academy. She was Israeli champion among the girls five times, including once in the category under 20 years. She became a WGM in 2001 and Men's IM in 2003.|
She is an eight time medalist of World and European Youth and Women Championships, including winning the first place in Girl's Under 20 European Rapid Championship in 2002. She won the Bykova's Memorial (women's WGM event) in December 2004. She won the bronze medal in Women's European Individual Championship in Moldova 2005 and scored 6.5/11 (TPR 2464) at the 12th European Individual Championship (2011), which included a 4/8 (+2 -2 =4) result against her 8 GM opponents in that event. She qualified for the FIDE Knock-Out Women's World Championship (2012), but lost in the first round to Georgian IM Nino Khurtsidze.
She recently made her first men's GM norm in the Hamburg open.

|Dec-14-08|| ||Udit Narayan: I had the honor to play against Ms. Dembo one time. We entered a Najdorf Sicilian and I was doing fine until about move 7, when I became unsure of the theory. In addition, I was very nervous playing such a high rated player. Needless to say, my position quickly collapsed after that and I resigned on the 10th move.|
