Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Budapest (1928)

In the aftermath of Kecskemet (1927), good chess forces came together for another international event, this time at the famous Siesta Sanatorium in Budapest. Prize monies were $200 (1st prize, from the New York publisher G. Wells), 800 Pengö (2nd prize, from the City of Budapest), 500, 300, 200 and 100 Pengö. Ten masters were invited, of which Milan Vidmar withdrew in the last moment (causing new pairings and schedule) and was replaced by Zoltan von Balla of Budapest. The former (1921-1927) World Champion Capablanca showed his class with 5 wins and 4 draws. The tournament was led by Geza Maroczy and chess editor László Tóth. It was followed up next year with Budapest (1929).

A short summary in Wiener Schach-Zeitung Nr. 17/18 (Sept. 1928) p. 284 is online at http://anno.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/a... (in German). Issue no. 19 (Oct. 1928) pp. 294-298 has three games of Capablanca annotated by Albert Becker (one with wrong round number).
