I saw three of the players play (Crane, Katsura, and Procita) and had a cue made by Zimmerman. A friend(?) of mine once tried to steer me into a one pocket game with Procita. I declined as I wanted to play nine ball.

Here is the tournament chart on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masako...hion_sheet.png

I have a copy of this photo among some of the things Robert Byrne bequeathed to the USBA.
Bob's desire was for the USBA to raise money through the sale of what was donated.
This photo will be for sale once everything is inventoried and cataloged.

The copy I have was poorly framed and the print is wrinkled but I think it can be repaired to nearly new condition.

Did Hoppe pronounce his name like "hop" or "hoppy".
(I've heard people say both)
