8. h4 c6

It's written in the book "MARSHALL'S BEST GAMES OF CHESS".

  Phony Benoni: "American Chess Bulletin", November 19005, p. 344, also has the order of move 7..Re8 and 8...c6.

Interesting that
Alekhine vs De Pedro, 1922, which essentially uplicates this game has the 7...Re8 / 8...c6 order of moves.

Apr-05-19  zydeco: A triumph for Marshall’s h4 setup. It’s pretty incredible how quickly black’s position collapses. I guess the culprit is 17....Rc8 - the rook belongs on d8. 18....c5 seems like the most principled under the circumstances. 19...Rd8 holds on better, but, already, black is losing material after 20.Bb6.
Dec-24-22  sudoplatov: A short analysis with Stockfish indicates that 14...f6 is the first big mistake, 14...b6 is safer. (Later, I'll look with a more powerful fish.)
