|Feb-05-06|| ||Resignation Trap: For many years, Bannik had always placed a large apple beside his board. When the position became completely clear, he took a knife, cut up the apple, and consumed it with a good appetite.|
But on one occasion Bannik did not manage to eat his apple: Bannik vs Petrosian, 1961 .
|Jun-11-06|| ||sixfeetunder: was he often banned?|
|May-11-08|| ||eremite: Bannik was the Champion of Ukraine 5 times. He was living in Germany since late 90th, but I do not know if he is alive now|
|Aug-24-08|| ||myschkin: . . .
|Nov-19-11|| ||Xeroxx: still alive??|
|Jan-21-13|| ||stanleys: Anatoly Bannik has died on 19 January 2013. R.I.P|
|Mar-05-13|| ||plang: According to British Chess Magazine during his career Bannik beat Petrosian and Stein twice each and Spassky, Korchnoi, Tal, Kotov and Furman once each.|
|Mar-27-13|| ||Gottschalk: R.I.P. GM Bannik .|
|Mar-28-13|| ||The Last Straw: RIP Bannik.|
|Mar-28-13|| ||wordfunph: rest in peace, Master Bannik.|
|Jun-10-13|| ||Conrad93: Five time Ukrainian Chess Champion. Very impressive.|
|Jun-10-13|| ||perfidious: A five-time Ukrainian champion is 'very impressive' according to our great historian <Conrad>, yet this poster refers to top GMs such as Ivanchuk in stridently negative terms.|
|Jun-10-13|| ||dx9293: <perfidious> Yes, this is very strange!|
Of course, Bannik was a VERY strong player. But I don't get <Conrad93>'s bashing of Ivanchuk and other greats.
Care to explain, <Conrad93>?
|Jun-10-13|| ||perfidious: <dx9293> It is regrettable, but there have been others in these parts who have felt the need to indulge themselves in the same way.|
In a way, glad I was no more than an occasional poster in the days of the constant references to 'Drawnik' and never would have wished to become part of that mess, because if I had, some posters of the time would have got an earful, and I, likely banned.

|Sep-27-13|| ||zydeco: Bronstein calls him "a man of a very cold temperament " (200 Open Games)|
|Dec-21-13|| ||whiteshark: R.I.P.|
|Dec-21-13|| ||Petrosianic: What's the point of ripping every dead player in the database? Is it just a way of increasing post count without saying anything, or does it serve some kind of purpose?|
|Dec-21-13|| ||OhioChessFan: <Petrosianic: Is it just a way of increasing post count without saying anything>|
Yeah, much like saying Happy Birthday or RIP to people long dead.
|Dec-22-13|| ||whiteshark: <Petrosianic> Fair questions! It was only yesterday that I've found this link http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal... from where I selected all of my compatriots. I updated their biographical dates if necessary and had a commemorative minute of silence (and thus a post) for them.
No more, no less.
I wish you all the very best!
