The Almost World Champions.

Always the second but should have been first. They who in another time and place could have been Chess World Champions.

Viktor Korchnoi

We all know who Victor the Terrible is. Fighting chess incarnate, will accept sacs gladly, pawn grabs anytime, and stares his opponent in the face to prove his sac. One of the greatest endgame masters (especially the difficult Rook and Pawn) of all time.

In an epic career that spans from the 1940s to the 2012 Korchnoi has played every post-WW2 World Champion from Botvinnik to Carlsen; and has amassed positive scores against World Champions Tal, Petrosian, Spassky, and Carlsen; and tied scores against Botvinnik and Fischer. He defeated 9 world champions in individual games and played 11 a world record.

Leading a stormy life that shames tepid reality shows in and later out of the Soviet Union, Korchnoi very nearly made it to the very top during his matches with Karpov.

Korchnoi, his chess strength peaking as he approached 50 years of age, is undeniable proof that chess players have the capacity to play at full strength even in their 50s. It's just a matter of motivation and good health.

Viktor Korchnoi tied Mikhail Botvinnik 1 to 1, with 2 draws
