Jul-15-06  kidster: Nice game with the poisoned pawn accepted
Aug-29-07  brankat: There must be a lot of Mazzoni's games missing from this database. He didn't win 2 French Championships with +2...-17...=2 :-)
Aug-29-07  weisyschwarz: How about some more about his life?
Aug-29-07  pawnofdoom: Well, the games from the French Championships are definitely missing. He doesn't have any games at all from the two years that he won the championships
Oct-27-07  refutor: i added some of the missing games from Monte Carlo 1967...i will see if i can track down the french championships
