The great mid-twentieth century Grandmaster Efim Bugolubov once quipped: "When I'm White I win because I'm White, when I'm Black I win because I'm Bogolubov.".
Originally posted by MathurineI've been reading chess books for over thirty years, and I have never seen that quote attributed to anyone else other than Bogolubov. There are a lot of chess quotes with multiiple attributions, but I am not aware of any other claimants to the quote we're talking about. Please cite a source.

I prefer to play black, in the (ofttimes mistaken) belief that it allows me to dictate the opening variation.[/b]
