After Capablanca took the the title, it was agreed that any challenger had to raise a prize fund of 10,000 dollars. This eliminated challengers who had no real chance of victory, and such was the Cuban's strength that none emerged for six years. Then it was Alekhine who became the fourth official World Champion, defeating Capablanca at Buenos Aires, in 1927. There was no return match since Capablanca could not raise the necessary prize fund. Alekhine successfully defended his title against Bogoljubow in 1929 by a score of 15 1/2 to 9 1/2 and in 1934 by 15 1/2 by 10 1/2.
