I am trying to determine the author of a Chess quote which goes something like:
“The beauty of a Chess move lies not in its appearance but in the idea/thought behind it”.
Thanks for your help.
According to Mr. Keiser Paul (of Berlaar, Belgium), the author is Dr. Siegbert Tarrasch.
But most accurate is to credit it to Aron Nimzovich. Tarrasch
once said that the “Nimzoindian Defense” was 'horrible' and
that's when the great Nimzovich replied back with the quote in
question while adding that he considered the “Tarrasch Defense”
a very bad one.
Thank you for visiting us,
