|9th Anglo-American Cable Match (1907)|
<Match 9, February 22-23, 1907: Great Britain 5½, United States 4½>|
(USA White on the odd-numbered boards)
With the death of Harry Nelson Pillsbury and the inactivity of several other familiar faces, fully half the American team changed. Burn got his pipe going in time to strengthen the British side, and the bottom game went their way when Robinson blundered a rook by falling for an elementary trap in the French Defense.
USA 4.5 GBR 5.5
1 Marshall ½ Burn ½
2 Barry 0 Atkins 1
3 Hodges ½ Lawrence ½
4 Voigt ½ Blackburne ½
5 Morgan 0 Richmond 1
6 Fox ½ Lee ½
7 Bampton 1 Ward 0
8 Wolbrecht ½ Holmes ½
9 Howell 1 Michell 0
10 Robinson 0 Wainwright 1
The British got another break on board 5 when Morgan forfeited on time, under the misapprehension that the control was 40/2 rather than 20/1. The Americans did have some consolation in Howell's brilliant win (played live in London).
The 8th Anglo-American Cable Match (1903) and 10th Anglo-American Cable Match (1908) were the previous and next editions of this team match-up.
Although it was not meant to be, the challenger even took time out in the midst of the Lasker - Marshall World Championship Match (1907) to take home the Newnes cup permanently! So England retrieved the trophy for another session.
