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 Pengo (2nd prize, from the City of Budapest), 500, 300, 200 and 100 Pengo. 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. 2nd Marshall at 6; 3rd and 4th Spielmann and Kmoch with 5. It was followed up next year with Budapest (1929).
