the problem with chess is its incosistency

    quote that is sometimes attributed to Alekhine about himself, and which may be apocryphal: "If you beat me in the opening, you have to beat me in the middlegame, and, if you beat me in the middlegame, you have to beat me in the endgame"

    "If you beat me in the opening, you have to beat me in the middlegame, and, if you beat me in the middlegame, you have to beat me in the endgame". Here, Alehkine is on top out of the opening and into the middlegame, and suddenly there is not even an endgame! A very unusual game

    From memory, it was Tarrasch - so technically, not a GM.

    Thanks for pointing out is was Tarrasch who said that. I looked him up and could not find the quote. I did find him saying, "Before the endgame the gods have placed the middlegame". Do you have the link to Tarrasch being given credit for the, beat him in the opening, middle game and end game"?

    Memory was wrong, apparently. You're probably right that it was Alekhine.

    Because Aronian goes for such positions and thrives in them, and magnus goes for such positions and thrives in them?

     

    #edit#

    And what does chess being incosistent have to do with Aronian and Carlsen? xD

    I looked up the quote and the closest I could find was Alehkine.
