Default Alekhine Refutes Steinitz "Gradual Accumulation" Theory

"A chessgame is won with the gradual accumulation of small advantages." --
Steinitz

"A chessgame is won with the RAPID ACCUMULATION OF LARGE ADVANTAGES." --
Alekhine

Play over his games and you will notice this motif in Alekhine's games. His
theory was simple: "Go for the greatest possible edge if the opponent makes the
most logical blunder, while not losing strength of position if he finds the
right move."

Opportunistic chess is good chess.
