Akiba Kiwelowicz Rubinstein (1880 to 1961) was a Polish chess Grandmaster at the beginning of the 20th century.

Rubinstein was one of the earliest chess players to take the endgame into account when choosing and playing the opening. Exceptionally talented in the endgame, particularly in rook endings, Rubinstein broke new ground in endgame theory.
