Efren Reyes is one of the greatest billiards players in the world, the legendary Filipino hand has more than 100 international championships and 4 world championships. He came to billiards like a charm, when he worked at a pool club since he was a child and it was here that helped Reyes nurture his passion to become the world’s top player.

Possessing different skills, Reyes won the hearts of viewers because he often performed “magic” shots. When he was in the most difficult situations, it was also when he showed off his unique skills.
One of Reyes’ famous strokes, which was called “snooker history” by a billiards magazine reporter, appeared in 1995. When he faced star player Earl Strickland (USA) at the event. At the 1995 Sands Regency Open, Reyes put himself in a difficult position, but then he launched a “Z” shot, sending the ball to hit two tapes before sending the host ball into the hole.
Witnessing the attack of “Witch” Reyes in the stands, opponent Strickland also admired his colleague from the Philippines. After that kick, Reyes was considered to have won and it was Strickland who stood up, raising Reyes’ hand high to honor the opponent’s victory.
That odd chance helped Reyes win 13-12, thereby winning the 1995 Sands Regency Open championship.
