  Stonehenge: The Euwe brothers :)

Mar-21-18  Marmot PFL: The younger player is always the stronger. 1628 games for the younger Max to 1 for older bro in the database. Footnote in chess biography like Berthold Lasker or Asuka Nakamura.
Mar-21-18  Olavi: Robert Byrne was stronger than his younger brother, but apart from them...?
Mar-21-18  Retireborn: <Olavi> Not sure that Robert was always the stronger, though he did overtake Donald at some point.

Younger Jan was stronger than older Ton Timman, but older Lajos was stronger than younger Ferenc Portisch.

Mar-21-18  Marmot PFL: Of course for sisters the Polgars fit the pattern, with youngest Judit the best female player ever.
Mar-22-18  Caissanist: Donald Byrne was sick for the last 15 years of his life. Prior to that, his results were at least as impressive as his brother's.
Mar-22-18  Caissanist: There are a <lot> of very strong chess siblings, and it does seem that the younger sibling is stronger the vast majority of the time. Besides the names mentioned above, other strong masters who were surpassed by super-GM younger siblings include Alexei Alekhine , Sarkhan Gashimov , and Zeinab Mamedjarova .
Apr-04-18  Monocle: I'm not surprised that younger siblings are often stronger when both are strong players. They have the advantage of facing a strong regular opponent at a younger age.
