3rd Anglo-American Cable Match (1898)
<Match 3, March 18-19, 1898: Great Britain 5, United States 4>

Once again, British depth told the story. The Americans scored 4-1 on the top five boards, but could only manage 1/2-point on the bottom five. Board 7 was possibly the least interesting game in the entire series, Baird producing nothing from his last 45 moves except a very long scoresheet.

The 2nd Anglo-American Cable Match (1897) and 4th Anglo-American Cable Match (1899) were the previous and next editions of this team match-up for the Newnes Cup.
