|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. |
|Jul-03-07|| ||whiteshark: Isaac Mazel (1911-1943)
|Oct-19-08|| ||Mibelz: Izaak Mazel, born in Minsk, Belarus, in 1911, won Moscow City championship in 1941/42, and died in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in 1943.|
|Oct-13-09|| ||xenophon: was he in 'internal exile' by any chance?|
|Mar-26-10|| ||UUDD: He wasn't.
From a Soviet military order:
'Lieutenant MAZEL Isaak Yakovlevich - platoon commander, stayed for treatment at Tashkent Military Hospital 340. Died of disease 31.3.1945.
1911 y. Wife RUBTSOVA Olga Nikolayevna [Address]'
|Jun-04-14|| ||GrahamClayton: <Nibelz>...won Moscow City championship in 1941/42|
Mazel defeated some good players in that tournament - Panov, Petrov, Alatortsev, Yudovich and Zubarev, amongst others.
Mazel was serving in the Red Army on the front near Moscow, and was given permission by his commander to come back into the city to play his games.
|Oct-22-14|| ||Ke2: I think Edelman - Mazel is pretty notable.|
|Sep-12-15|| ||zanzibar: There is a fantastic photo of of a very healthy young Mazel, from the 1938 All-Lenin ch here:|
|Sep-13-15|| ||MissScarlett: He'd escaped my dragnet.|
|Sep-14-15|| ||zanzibar: <MS> There is no escape...|
