Because Aronian goes for such positions and thrives in them, and magnus goes for such positions and thrives in them?
And what does chess being incosistent have to do with Aronian and Carlsen? xD
A famous GM has been known to say, that to beat him, you have to beat him in the opening, middle game and end 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.
I looked up the quote and the closest I could find was Alehkine.
