Your right MacDonnel-Labourdonnais games were classics and I forgot Lasker-Capa

Don't Forget ... (among others) Steinitz-Zukertort
Steinitz-Chigorin
Janowski-Marshall (they played four matches in 1905, 1908, 1912 and 1916 and countless games in tournaments)
Lasker-Tarrasch
Reshewsky-Najdorf (two matches, 1952 and 1953 and countless games in tournaments)
Botvinnik-Smyslov (three world championship matches in 1954 - drawn - 1957 - won by Smyslov - and 1958 - won by Botvinnik)
(to be continued ...)

Here's another Lasker-Pillsbury,sadly cut short by the latter's untimely death. They were 7-7 lifetime. What a World Title match that might have been between those two!

i believe that the Bottvinnik vs Fischer tension makes it the greatest rivalry. Both are quite stubborn and hate every aspect of each other. too bad they only played one game. i favor Bottvinnik, but who knows what the results of a tournament could have been.

Zukertort maybe the biggest talent who never ended as world champion!
Others in that line to is:
Rubinstein, Nimzowich, Reti and Stein.

How about:

Korchnoi vs Karpov
Karpov vs Kasparov
Bronstein vs Smyslov

Best wishes
