I'm sure everyone has seen those Dos Equis beer commercials about the World's Most Interesting Man and they have all the funny facts about him...Lets hear what you can come up about the greatest modern day pool player. I'll start it off:

"He once lost the Derby City one pocket tournament, just to see how it feels."

"I heard he once got kicked in the balls but didn't even flinch because his balls are made of solid IVORY"

UFO's believe in Efren but their govt. keeps it in secrecy b/c their people wouldn't be able to handle the existence of Efren.

His full name is Efren Winatpool Reyes.

He stopped using his middle name because he didn't want to be so obvious.

After you've beat the Ghost Ball handily, only then can you try playing the Efren-Ball.
Nobody has come close to beating it.

Efren once raced the ghost 10-ahead in rotation.
After six racks, the ghost asked if efren would let him out for half.

He was once given a golden Balabushka from God himself only to autograph it and hand it back.

thanks Mosconiac :)

I hear efren can make all his shots while the CB is still moving, but he won't because the rulebook says it's a foul.

When he was 11 he had a monster break, consistently sinking 6 balls on average. His mentor told him he'd never get any action that way, and that's why you see the toned down version today.

jason
06-19-2009, 07:47 AM
he once ran a 6 pack so fast that time reversed 7 hours

he once hit the nine ball so accurately, that he split an atom on contact

Wanna see a 9-ball cry?

In fact, the 9-ball really cried.
U know why...

He once ran a one hole rack so complicated that Einstein had to change the "E" in E=MC2 from "Energy" to "Efren"

Andrew Manning
06-19-2009, 08:09 AM
He once reduced an opponent to an incoherent sobbing heap on the floor by playing 971 consecutive safeties while on the 8 in the final rack of a match, hooking his opponent behind the 9 every time.

He once won the World Championship against his only competitor, Cesar Morales, because nobody else was qualified.

Efren is known for his famous Z-kick against earl. What people don't know is that he was gonna play his usual W-kick but he heard earl has a temper.

Efren doesn't get hooked.
He plays position behind balls sometimes to practice his kicks.

Efren taught McGuyver everything he knows.

Even Chuck Norris fears him.

When the great Efren passes away he will forever change the way time is referred to. On death it will become the year 0 A.E. and all time before will be referred to as B.E.

A.E. = After Efren
B.E. = Before Efren

Another One... I heard this one is true too.

Efren once hit a cue ball with back hand english and stopped a truck to save a baby's life...That kid was Lee Van Corteza

Efren once had a jelly roll so big that even he couldn't eat it all.

Efren once hustled Imelda Marcos out of her entire shoe collection just to make sure nobody could ever get an edge with "pool shoes".

Lint never gets in the way of Efren's cueball.
He plays position away from them.

In Vegas, Efren once won the BCA open one-handed and blind folded, hit the Double Diamond machine (twice), and was chauffeured the entire trip by Wayne Newton and 5 strippers from Cheetas and then was over heard saying, "I got Lucky!"

Efren was once put in the electric chair at the start of a match because the ref flipped a coin instead of lagging, the chair shorted out.

Efren only hooks himself because no else can - then he kicks safe out of it.

Efren challenged Chuck Norris to a facial hair growing contest. Efren spotted him the beard - Chuck lost

He let Allen Hopkins get a 10-0 lead in a race to 11, alternate break, then won match, just to show that no lead is safe...

Efren once ate a Pearl in Hong Kong and 3 days later he shat out $100,000 and it was green... just like The Color of Money :thumbup:

Efren once drew the table back with top spin on the cue ball.

CreeDo
06-19-2009, 10:51 PM
When Chuck Norris watched efren play, he quit roundhouse kicking people forever because he knew he'd never be as good at kicking as efren.

Efren doesn't know about automatic ball returns because the last time he had to rack for someone was in 1964.

ESPN has unaired footage of a trick shot competition between efren and mike massey. Mike jumped the cue ball into his boot. Efren went next and got it on his first try... while Mike was still sitting in his chair wearing it. Mike got mad and responded by jumping the CB into efren's mouth and that's why efren has no teeth.

Efren gave the ghost the wild 6,7,8,9 and the breaks playing 100 ahead sets. on the 99th the ghost was on his knees begging for efren to give him a game to avoid being skunked.

I wondered when the pheolic tip cheap shot was gonna be taken...I guess it took about this long LOL!!!

I once saw Efren miss a kick shot...it was the summer of 69...wait a minute...I wasnt born till the fall of 84???

Though Earl never managed to get his goat in all the matches Earl went crazy on him, Efren always enjoyed laughing at Earl in untranslatable Tagalog. He loved making a fool out of Earl. In one match in Muntinlupa, Efren pushed out freezing the cue with the 9 that covered the one. You could almost hear Earl say "go ahead and eat your stupidity". Then came a spinned kick shot that bounced and made the cue ball cling to the short rail, missing an obstruction by a hair, into the one and one into the pocket. Only Efren can make Earl clap smileless.

way back before efren went pro and he couldn't afford a cue, he literally KICKED the ball across the table

While we have learned the Earth orbits the Sun when Efren plays the Sun orbits Efren's cueball.

The most interesting thing is that no matter what crazy rumor you've ever heard about Efren Reyes - THEY ARE ALL TRUE.

CreeDo

One time efren's opponent complained about the measles ball. So efren cut the next 130 shots ultra thin to rub off the red spots.

Some players claim to have run a rack with an umbrella. Efren ran 10 in a row with an open umbrella.

Efren once put so much english on a the cue ball, he didn't have much left over for the postgame interview.

After playing a man 20 ahead and running the set out the man asked for weight to which Efren responds, I would but I have never watched you shoot.
