Efren "Bata" Reyes

Efren “Bata” Reyes


Efren Manalang Reyes, OLD, PLH (born August 26, 1954), nicknamed the Magician and Bata, is a Filipino professional pool player. A winner of over 70 international titles, Reyes was the first player to win world championships in two different disciplines in pool. Among his numerous titles Reyes is a four-time World Eight-ball Champion, the 1999 WPA World Nine-ball Champion, a three-time US Open winner, a two-time World Pool League winner and a 14-time Derby City Classic winner – including an unprecedented five Master of the Table crowns. By defeating Earl Strickland in the inaugural Color of Money event in 1996, Reyes took home the largest single event purse in pool history. Many analysts, fans, and current and former players consider Reyes to be the greatest pool player of all time. (Source: Wikipedia)

Earl „The Pearl“ Strickland

Earl „The Pearl“ Strickland


Earl “The Pearl” Strickland (born June 8, 1961 in Roseboro, North Carolina) is an American professional pool player who is considered one of the best nine-ball players of all time. He has won numerous championship titles and, in 2006, was inducted into the Billiard Congress of America’s Hall of Fame. He is also known as one of the sport’s most controversial players for his outspoken views and his sometimes volatile behavior at tournaments. (Source: Wikipedia)

Francisco „Django“ Bustamante

Francisco „Django“ Bustamante


Francisco Bustamante (born December 29, 1963, Philippines) is a Filipino professional pocket billiards (pool) player from Tarlac, Central Luzon and the 2010 World Nine-ball Champion, nicknamed “Django”, after the lead character of the film of the same name, and sometimes also called “Bustie”. Bustamante has been playing since the age of ten, and has won titles such as the Munich Masters, The German Nine-ball Championship, and the Japan Nine-ball Championship, making him one of billiards’ greatest international stars. In 2010, Bustamante again reached the finals of the World Nine-ball Championship. Unlike his first final eight years ago, fate did not deny him. Bustamante won the match and the title against Taiwan’s Kuo Po-cheng, a second-placer in the 2005 event. On July 27, 2010, Francisco Bustamante, along with Terry Bell and Larry Hubbart who are founders of the American Pool Players Association (APA), were elected to the Billiard Congress of America’s Hall of Fame. In this, Bustamante would become the second player from the Philippines after Efren Reyes to be added. (Source: Wikipedia)
