    It's hard to say with certainty. Objectively speaking Houdini 4 is.  However, relative to one's peers perhaps it was Lasker due to his amazing tournament record and ability to draw in seemingly hopeless positions.  Rubinstein was probably the greatest player in history never to be world champion (compared to peers of course, objectively speaking that honor would have to go to Aronian due to the fact that he's the only person ever over 2800 to never be world champion).  And of course you have Capablanca's amazing technical ability, schematic thinking, and endgame skill as well. 

     

    Kasparov was simply a calculation monster with an amazing intuition as well.  His proficiency at the positional sacrifice, famous calculation skills, and incredible opening prep made even the great Karpov crack and lose the title.

    Someone people overlook and doesn't get the recognition he should is Philidor who was an unofficial world champion for 50 years.
