Janowski - Showalter Third Match

Janowski - Showalter Third Match (1899)
After the Manhattan Chess Club had hosted two Janowski - Showalter matches, the Brooklyn Chess Club joined in the fun by bringing the fellows on over for a seven-game set held from March 29 through April 7, 1899. The stakes were $250 a side, with the Club tossing in an extra $100 to be divided equally between the players.

This time it was Showalter getting off to the fast start, with Janowski unable to catch up.

The match started soon after the Janowski - Showalter Match 2 (1899). The players were actually set to play another match of five games up for $500 a side. It was scheduled to begin on April 22, but was canceled due to "the two experts having arrived at the conclusion that they had kept up hostilities long enough". Instead, the Janowski - Showalter Match 4 (1916) took place well over a decade later.
