  offramp: Well, he did add the bit <Sadly, he died from starvation>, which I didn't know.
Oct-02-05  azaris: Is it possible to die from starvation happily?

  offramp: <azaris: Is it possible to die from starvation happily?> If you are falling off the Sears Tower, yes.
Dec-26-05  THE pawn: hahaha! I wonder what hurts the most.

No...actually, I don't wanna know.

Dec-29-07  whiteshark: Is where any relationship to
Ilya Leontievich Rabinovich or Joseph Rabinovich ?
Dec-29-07  Calli: I think Ilya and Abram were not related. "Joseph" is probably Ilya. I see a game in the 1933 USSR Championship played by Ilya is attributed to "Joseph" on CG.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: All the Rabinoviches are related to the Rabbinocalvitches, and they are all related sadly and happily to the Rabidovichoviches who are very thick with the endless Rabbinnobienoiaviches who are related very firmly but distantly to the lively and chattery Rabbittoviches.

  mifralu: <According to the memoirs of Nikolay Zubarev, Abram Isaakovich had a brother - Grigory Rabinovich, also a strong chess player, who was killed in 1920.>

Probably G I Rabinovich ??

Jun-02-18  hemy: <mifralu> Yes, Grigory Isaakovich Rabinovich = G I Rabinovich, brother of Abram Isaakovich Rabinovich.

In Russian National Tournament 1912 both brothers represented Wilna: Grigory played in "Hauptturnier", while Abram played in "Meisterturnier".

The Latvian newspaper "Rigasche Zeitung" Nr.174, 28.07.1912, p. 18

Abram Isaakovich Rabinovich was born on January 5, 1878 (old calendar) and passed away November 7, 1943
