|12th Anglo-American Cable Match (1910)|
<Match 12: March 11-12, 1910: Great Britain 6½, United States 3½>|
(USA White on the odd-numbered boards)
The British won their second match in a row, duplicating the Americans' record margin from 1908. This time, their team had some strong, upcoming players on their side with Yates and Thomas playing for the first time. Atkins' win was widely considered the best game of the match, and possibly of his career. The 11th Anglo-American Cable Match (1909) and 13th Anglo-American Cable Match (1911) were the previous and next editions of this team match-up for the Newnes Cup.

On a sad note, Sir George Newnes, whose Cup had helped kick off the nonsense, died in 1910. Perhaps it was appropriate that the next match would be the last.
