Efren “Bata” Reyes is a legend. He came to the USA from the Philippines in the 1980s, to teach the local pros a lesson. Players had already heard his name, but nobody knew his face. So he called himself “Caesar Morales”. And he beat all the big names, as a complete nobody.

Quickly people recognized who Caesar Morales really was: Efren “Bata” Reyes. Or “The Magician”, as they started to call him.

Because he could do everything, made it look easy and, if that wasn’t enough, was smiling all the time.
