<Match 6, April 19-20, 1901: United States 5, Great Britain 5>

It was now the USA's turn to be within one win of retaining the Newnes Cup permanently, but the British just hung on with a tie match that broke several streaks. Pillsbury finally collected a win on board 1 over Blackburne, but Showalter suffered his first loss and Barry his first draw. On the other hand, Hymes ended his run of draws with a victory, but it was not enough.

The 5th Anglo-American Cable Match (1900) and 7th Anglo-American Cable Match (1902) were the previous and next editions of this team match-up for the Newnes Cup.
