Capablanca supposedly never studied chess openings (the first phase of a game).When he defeated the US player Frank Marshall, Marshall went away and prepared an opening novelty which he kept secret, waiting to unleash it against Capablanca and secure his revenge.

Nine years later he finally got his chance; only to be defeated once again when Capa found his way through the complications over the board.
