Lucas Brunner is the first grandmaster born in Switzerland (*1967, living and educated from 1968 to 1989/90 in Germany, Berlin-West, then settling permanently to Switzerland).

Brunner on emotional pain (Gazza would say: mental torture) in chess:

<Wer einmal Grossmeister ist, wird – pathologische Ursachen vorbehalten – nicht mehr massiv abfallen. 90 Prozent meiner damaligen Leistung kann ich noch heute abrufen. Allerdings sind es die restlichen 10 Prozent, die dafür verantwortlich sind, ob man an der Spitze mithalten kann. ...

Schach ist mittlerweile zwar nicht mehr das Wichtigste in meinem Leben, doch Niederlagen sind nach wie vor sehr schmerzhaft. Ich habe im Büro noch nie so viel Frust, fast möchte ich sagen Seelenschmerz erlebt, wie nach einer verlorenen Partie. ...

Schach ist gnadenloser als viele andere Sportarten. Ein unüberlegter Zug reicht und alles, was man im Spiel mühsam aufgebaut hat, ist schlagartig zunichte.> (unquote)
