USA 4.0 GBR 6.0 1 Marshall 1 Blackburne 0 2 Barry Lawrence 3 Hodges 1 Ward 0 4 Voigt 1 Wainwright 0 5 Howell 0 Blake 1 6 Helms 0 Michell 1 7 Schwietzer 0 Wahltuch 1 8 Stadelman Holmes 9 Mlotkowski 0 Sergeant 1 10 Ruth 0 Jacobs 1

With the teams closer to full strength, Great Britain again showed their traditional depth: they scored only 1 draw on the top four boards, but collected 5 on the bottom six!

Marshall later related how he announced mate in five against Blackburne and received the reply, "Saw it; gone home."

The 10th Anglo-American Cable Match (1908) and 12th Anglo-American Cable Match (1910) were the previous and next editions of this team match-up for the Newnes Cup.
