[what is this?]
Andreas Ascharin was born in Pärnu, Estonia in 1843. In 1875-1879 he worked in Saint Petersburg as a journalist for The St. Petersburger Zeitung and The St. Petersburger Herold. One of the strongest masters of the era, he beat notable players such as Mikhail Chigorin and Emmanuel Schiffers.

In 1879 he moved to Riga where he worked as a teacher of German language at a gymnasium, and a translator of Russian literature into German. Among others, he published Schach-Humoresken (Riga 1894). He was president of the Riga Chess Association.
