MATSUYAMA FOTO 1929, 16 FEB
Sensation Of Recent Tourney K INREY MATSUYAMA, tiny Japa- j Cochran, Horemans, Hagenlacher and nese cue artist, was the surprise and sensation of the recent world’s championship 18.2 billiard tournament, tournament, in which Jake Schaeffer regained regained his title. Matsuyama is by far the smallest man in the first rank of cue stars, standing but four Grange, the first four former world’s champions, throughout the tourney up to his two final matches in which he was defeated by Cochran, who broke his streak, and by the present champion, Schaeffer. Kinrey finished the tournament in feet 11 inches and weighing only 92 : fourth place, winning the 81,000 that pounds. He was formerly the Junior champion, and w-hile considered a topnotcher the past few years, he surprised everyone with his sensational sensational play. This was his first appearance In a world’s championship tournament, and he led such stars as Schaeffer, went with it. He will surely be regarded regarded and respected as a star of the first rank from now on, and no longer a “dark horse,” as he was considered considered In the recent championship play. As can be seen by his photo, he is very young. He represented Japan in the tourney.
