The Best Player Never to Become World Champion?

  • 14 months ago · Quote · #481


    Just counting the 3 years peak of the ELO points is not the correct solution for determining who was the best player ever not becoming worldchampion. Because there is an inflation of ELO points during the decades and centuries. So you first have to make a correction for the inflation to find the correct answer to that question. But Korchnoi is still a very good candidate, among others...

    Paul Keres - of course. but Bronstein, Rubinstein and Nimzowich are also fine candidates.
