This is why Efren Reyes is “The Magician” of billiards


For those not familiar with the game of 10 Ball, it is a rotation game using ten balls, i.e. player must shoot lowest numbered balls in order; player must call the pocket. Whoever makes the 10-ball wins.

In the video below Efren is about to win the match by running out the last three balls. He has a little fun with the straight-in 10-ball…

He makes it look effortless, but this is a crazy, low-percentage shot. Essentially it is a two-rail-bank-carom to the side pocket, flawlessly executed. He really couldn’t afford any margin of error.

That’s why he is The Magician. Always a joy to watch him play.
