I like morphy so I think morphy
That doesn't make sense. Steinitz was the first player to put emphasis on defense. I think Morphy's attacks would vaporize.
Did he mention attacks? lol
He said he chose Morphy because he likes Morphy. An unusually honest answer I think!
Honest, but nonsensical. I like Lasker, but I would never put him ahead of Capablanca. That would be contrary to evidence.
In all the tournaments that both Capa and Lasker were in, Capablanca only finished ahead of Lasker twice-in 2 tournaments from 1936, when Lasker was 68(!) Even in 1935, at the age of 67, Lasker finished well ahead of Capa in Moscow.
That may be true, but in every encounter Lasker lost.
Neither is correct. Lasker beat Capablanca in the final section of St. Petersburg 1914 and at Moscow 1935. Capablanca beat Lasker at New York 1924 (Lasker won the tournament) and at Moscow 1936. The rest of Capablanca's wins were in their title match in Havana.
