Feb-10-06  Jim Bartle: No Pun of the Day with Zueger? I remember years ago a US team was going to play the Swiss team, and they adopted the battle cry "Beat Zueger!"
Jul-12-08  Jason Frost: Shariyazdanov vs B Zueger, 1998
Jan-09-09  WhiteRook48: someone should make a game collection of "Players with funny names" or does that collection already exist?
Feb-21-09  WhiteRook48: no, I don't think it does
Mar-12-09  Whitehat1963: His names sounds like a cheer or a challenge.
Mar-17-09  dx9293: It looks like he made a GM norm at the European Championship with a TPR of exactly 2601! (6 points out of 11)

  whiteshark: I think his name is a Swiss thing.
Mar-24-09  Dredge Rivers: We got the Beat! Yeah!
Jul-11-13  epistle: if you can!
Oct-08-13  Cemoblanca: Hi!
I'm looking for the game Zueger VS Landenbergue played in Chiasso 1991.

Here is the final position (and indeed a wonderful "puzzle" to solve):

click for larger view

After 1.Qxg3?? Black immediately mated the White Monarch with 1...Qh1. There was only one problem: White had very good chances to winning this. The winning line was really difficult to imagine and begins with 1.Rg7+! Well, I do not wish to give away too much at this point. ;) I will add only this: After a long roller coaster ride White would have laughed last. :)

By the way: Please could someone send me the "uncut" version of this game? Thanks in advance.

  FSR: It would be nice to see a game where a team of players beats Zueger. Then we could use this pun:
