Member since Feb-11-07 · Last seen Oct-02-11
Hi! I've started playing chess when I was a kid, then joined a club when I was 9, played tournaments etc up to 19. Then there was a long break. At the age of 31 I have rediscovered the fun of chess. I was born in Poland, grew up in Germany, studied in Britain, lived for three years in Katowice/Poland, now living again in Germany, working as freelance translator since October 2008(English into German and Polish into German and English), and also writing stories and planning a novel.

My e-mail address is: anita.si(at)ecosse.zzn.com

To read some of my stories (also very much related to chess) check out my website on Akiba Rubinstein: http://rubina.yfw24.de

And you're welcome to challenge me on gameknot; my username is: Chessanita (rating 1730)

Anyi: Happy New Year wishes from me, too, <Brankat>. Recently I have been working a lot and there was no time for CG - in the new year I'll try to be here more often...
 
   Dec-30-09 Akiba Rubinstein (replies)
 
Anyi: Am looking forward to hearing from you <TheFocus>. "Akiba" is the German version of "Akiva", as you can see from the Wikipedia article on the famous Rabbi Akiva ben Josef: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rabbi_... It may be that Rubinstein went for the German version of his name ...
 
   Jul-05-09 Emanuel Lasker (replies)
 
Anyi: Have been at the Lasker rapid chess memorial in Thyrow today (my result: somewhere in the middle). Thyrow is a little village near Berlin where Lasker had his summer residence. The house is still standing, but slowly falling apart due to lack in financial means. I made a a very short ...

Anyi: I guess Samy Rubinstein loved painting too much to become a chess player of grandmaster level. His rating was about 2200. Btw, I plan to translate a CREB interview with him into English and to publish it on my website...

Anyi: Thank you very much <Calli>! Of course the same to you! The sunshine is glorious here in the moutains where I'm spending four days of relaxation in midst of woods and valleys...

Anyi: Hi <parisattack>! As a translator and chess lover I am of course very interested in chess literature, and will often come here, too. For my research I am in particular interested in Yiddish and Hebrew chess literature from the early 20th century. You know, it's all connected to ...
 
   Feb-12-09 Pyke chessforum (replies)
 
Anyi: Hi <Pyke>, thanks for your encouraging comment in the Lasker forum! I'll definitely continue my research in the next months, as I'm moving to a big city with huge and extensive libaries... Btw, according to Kasparov, Botvinnik was much inspired by Rubinstein's approach to the ...
 
   Jan-19-09 Rubinstein vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1909 (replies)
 
Anyi: After WWI Rubinstein reminded Lasker of their contract for a match, and even held a speech at a simultan display in 1920 asking for a triangular world championship match between Lasker, Capablanca, and him, (see book by Donaldson and Minev, p. 370), but at that time and onwards he had ...

Anyi: Thanks "Nina Myers"! On my website I have just put on a Beatles-inspired story (go on my profile, if the click doesn't work directly, copy and paste it, once you're on my website click on "Non-chess related stories"). My favourite Beatles song is "In My Life", but there are so many ...

Anyi: Hi <karpova>, for my latest short story I am looking for a picture of Frank Marshall's cemetery, and <brankat> wrote: <Frank Marshall was most likely buried somewhere in New York City. I can't remember it now, but there was a hyper-link somewhere around here to a site ...
