Jun-11-18  diagonal: Bio & Photo of IM Robert Zysk in the Polish Wikipedia:

Strong Junior player, then later playing only occasionally (mostly in team events) due to his professional career in the motor industry, and later as management consultant.

Arguably his most important game:

<Robert Zysk (Elo 2400, Bamberg) vs. Nigel Short (Elo 2620, Solingen), Bundesliga (German Team Championship) 1987/88, 1-0>

R Zysk vs Short, 1988

After that game, Solingen decided to engage Zysk for the next seasons!

Today, he plays for MSA Zugzwang, 1. Bundesliga :
