The great Billiard Player.
gave an exhibition, in Detroit
, last Wednesday evening. The first part of the performance consisted of a three ball game of one hundred points between Berger
and Seereiter, which the former won by nearly seventy points.
His best run was twenty-six caroms, and next best thirteen.
Secreiter made one run of ten.
The latter played at great disadvantage, not being accustomed to the table, which was smaller, and four inches lower than those generally made use of by him. The feature of the evening was the ‘"difficult problems"’ of Berger
Sometimes his balls mounted the tops of the cushions, rolling off at the proper time to carom, again traveling half the length of the table, then turning suddenly, returning faster than they went.
It was to have been followed by a foot ball game, 500 points.
The curious people of Detroit
were greatly pleased.
