gifted if erratic Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Alekhin
Alekhine, though one of the greatest chess players, was an egomaniacal paranoid alcoholic. In addition his playing does not show the beautiful, balanced echoing attributed to Luzhin, whereas Rubinstein's does. Likewise with Morphy, a brilliant (19th century) combinational player but not a positional (Apollonian) player like Luzhin. Bardeleben, on the other hand, seems with Rubinstein, to fit into the mosaic.
