Oct-25-06  syracrophy: Some information about this player that I obtained from

1607553 Arwanitakis, Michael M
<Federation: Austria> <FIDE title: None> <Current rating: 2265> <Birthday Year: 1976>

Oct-25-06  mazetas: Some more information: His surname looks Greek and not Austrian. In Greek should be Arvanitakis, which is a very common name. The "v" insteed of "w" is meaningless cause the pronounce of the name still the same.
Dec-04-22  Margetic D: <mazetas> His father is a Greek. I know him personally, we played since 1992 for the same chessclubin Graz (Styria/Austria) His name is indeed with a v instead of w: Michael Arvanitakis. Very nice person, very talanted chess player, had in his younger days an attacking play style. Later he swithed his opening repertoire. I think the hard work in medical field prevented that he become even stronger player. If it should be about ELO, his best performance was 2297 if i am not wrong. Personally, i could unfortunately after the war in my country never reach my old level and play-quality.As i was 15, i achieved my best perfromances in tournament chess (2155, July 1991), and in Autria (where my level droped) Arvanitakis and Spiendelboeck was my first sparring chess mates with whom i tried to reach pertially my former level. I will be forever in charge,because this peole saved me mentally. Arvanitakis is now working as plastic surgeon, he retired from chess, to my knowledge 2007.

Do you know if he's aware that FIDE spells it with a "w" on his FIDE card?
