Which is the right Burger topping?|

|Apr-18-08|| ||stoy: Was not Karl Burger a NYC area physician? I remember him from the 1960s. I recall seeing him at the Marshall CC.|
|Apr-18-08|| ||Strongest Force: You are right, stoy. My predominant memory of him is taking a bunch of masters in two cars to the best pizza place in NYC at the time; it was a hangout of mine that i told him about.|
|Oct-06-08|| ||al wazir: K. Burger has an interesting career trajectory: active for over 60 years; the database contains 30 games for the first 30 years, almost all played in the U.S.; over 300 in the next 30 years, mostly in Europe; and most of his games in the past ten years have been Internet chess.|
Is it possible that there is more than one K. Burger?
|Nov-01-08|| ||Granny O Doul: <al wazir> He was wheelchair-bound in his later years (effects of diabetes). He went to Europe because he had made a lot of money as a doctor and it was time to start spending it.|
|May-14-10|| ||myschkin: . . .
<Cheapo> a phrase coined by U.S. Master Dr. Karl Burger, who has won a large percentage of his games by such a maneuver; a move which threatens something so obvious that only an idiot would fall for it, and he does.
