Scottish Billiard Champion’s Engagements

As already stated the Scottish champion (whose portrait
appears in this issue in The Billiard Monthly Portrait Gallery),
has been invited to take part in Messrs. Burroughes
and Watts’ Tournament in London. There will be eight
competitors, the new-comers being Aiken, Mack, and possibly
a younger player. The tournament will be on the
usual American principle, and it ensures Aiken a seven
weeks’ engagement. It is proposed in the tournament to
devise a new scheme whereby spectators will be given two
hours’ play, afternoon and evening. The reason for the
change is that the short sessions usually play into the hands
of the scratch man, while the spectators are often disappointed
in the brevity of the session. Aiken begins his
season in London with a fortnight’s match with Diggle,
starting on September 4.
