    Here are 15 players that never became world chess champion and all of them were objectively stronger than Steinitz.

    Paul Morphy
    Tarrasch
    Pillsbury
    Maroczy
    Schlecter
    Rubinstein
    Nimzowitsch
    Bogo
    Fine
    Keres
    Sammy
    Bronstein
    Korchnoi
    Short
    Shirov
    Ivanchuk
    Topalov

    Seriously, you could even throw guys like Marshall and Janowski on this list, too. They would have beat the brakes off Steinitz. Most of these guys on this list were guys that just didn't get it done or didn't get the opportunity. Many of them were the strongest in the world or the 2nd strongest in the world at the time of their career.

    Here is a list of the chess players I consider to be the greatest contributors to the game.

    Steinitz
    Tarrasch
    Chigorin
    Lasker
    Maroczy
    Rubinstein
    Tartakower
    Nimzo
    Alekhine
    Euwe
    Botvinnik
    Bronstein
    Tal
    Kasparov
    John Nunn

    For the amateur or even a young and aspiring professional, this is the most important list of chess players.
