|Janowski - Marshall, Match 1 (1899)|
Although not always successful, there are no more interesting chess masters to be found at the present day than the American champion, Frank J. Marshall, and the Franco-Polish expert, D. Janowski. A careful perusal of the games they played at Biarritz will show that these men do not believe in waiting tactics. Neither of them expects his adversary to beat himself, but they go hammer and tongs at each other and do not mind the consequences. Their object seems solely to be to create complicated and exciting positions and thus make it worth their while to fight. - New York Sun, October 6, 1912, commenting on Janowski - Marshall, Match 4 (1912).|
A match rivalry lasting almost two decades started immediately after the conclusion of the Janowski - Showalter Match 1 (1898), as David Janowski began a scheduled series of five games for a nominal stake with Frank James Marshall, champion of the Brooklyn Chess Club. The player who first scored three points would win the match.
New York, 18-21 Jan 1899

Only four games were contested, as Janowski swept the last three after Marshall pulled off a surprising victory in the first game. The third game was played at the Brooklyn Chess Club, the others at the Manhattan Chess Club. Janowski - Marshall, Match 2 (1905) was the next and 2nd in a series of encounters in match-play between these rivals.
