visayanbraindoctor: For the previous over the board Modern Benoni wars of the 1920s see:
Capablanca vs Janowski, 1924
Alekhine vs Capablanca, 1927
Capablanca vs Marshall, 1927
Nimzowitsch vs Marshall, 1927
Marshall, after his experiments on the Modern Benoni in New York 1927, once again employed it against Capablanca (the Modern Benoni's founder of all people!) this time in this game Capablanca vs Marshall, 1928.
Capablanca who had an uncanny sense of danger must have suspected that Marshall had prepared a novelty against the Knight maneuver to c4 (Nf3 - Nd2 - Nc4), which Capa himself employed for the first time in chess history in one of the games above (Capablanca vs Marshall, 1927) and which Nimzowitsch later also used (Nimzowitsch vs Marshall, 1927). So he sidestepped any Marshall prep by employing an entirely different strategy. This time he developed his KB to d3, his KN to e2, buttressed his c4 square with b3, opened up the center and the d-file by dxe6, retreated his KB on d3 to c2 thereby allowing the use of the d-file, and then transferred his major pieces to the d-file as rapidly as possible. Marshall got caught off-guard and quickly lost a pawn, and eventually the game. After the thrashing that Nimzo and Capa gave him, Marshall seemed to have given up on the Modern Benoni.
Ironically, it was Capablanca himself who probably ruined his creation's reputation.
