|Dec-13-04|| ||cade: An interesting player, he seems to enjoy creating bizzare positions on the chessboard rather than winning. A shame he wasnt more into playing seriously since he is able to create some very good combinations in some of his games. |

Mazel defeated some good players in that tournament - Panov, Petrov, Alatortsev, Yudovich and Zubarev, amongst others.
