|Mar-09-05|| ||Karpova: Elena Sedina (ITA) won the Australian 2005 Open Championship (the first woman ever!) with 8.5/11.|
Born in 1968
Titles: IM, WGM
|Mar-09-05|| ||checkpat: I think that women have better claim
to equality in chess than that!
Very sad for Australia that the National
competition is won by somebody under 2500
|Mar-09-05|| ||Open Defence: probably coz the notable Australian players represented other countries ? |
|Mar-09-05|| ||Karpova: <checkpat>
<I think that women have better claim

it's a great success for sedina. i didn't talk about female chessplayers in general.
<Very sad for Australia that the National
competition is won by somebody under 2500>
why? she deserves this success. there have been strong GMs like Kengis
|Sep-05-08|| ||sonia91: Today she won against Hou Yifan (!).|
|Jun-01-10|| ||weisyschwarz: Buon compleanno, Elena!|
|Dec-17-14|| ||waustad: She plays in many team events. I was wondering if she had moved to Germany because of her presence in the FBL, but she also plays in leagues in several other countries. I have no idea where she actually lives. It seems to have little to do with one's official nationality in chess terms.|
|Dec-12-21|| ||Albertan: Sedina is the 2021 Italian Women’s Chess Champion:|
