I'll be a part of the live studio audience this Tuesday and if you have any questions for Efren, SHOOT!

I'll try my best to tape it for posterity and I'll entertain the first 5 sensible questions under the sun,
The answers could be in Tagalog because Efren might not be able to express himself in English, but I'll
translate it the best that I can. This is your chance people!

does efren consiously know what squirt, deflection, pivot point, BHE etc is or does he just compensate and use it unconsiously from player 24/7?

What is in his mind, his biggest weakness if any.(game related.. not health, age etc.)

What pretournament preparations does he uses? (food, fysical training, relaxation?)

so many questions, i wouldnt know where to start

Pick one, I have to give others a chance, although all your questions are quite intriguing and
could help majority of us here.

You should know better that we can't give it away just like that! Are you going too Joey?

What's his opinion of the IPT?


It would be useless, he'll just blurt out the positives ;)

I think he got it from the "Filipino pool secrets" book.

How does he prepare himself mentally before a match and how does he sustain that mental preparedness during matches?

He can't be retiring anytime soon, he just ordered another case.;)

When cinching a moderate cut shot (30-60 degrees) on the 9 ball, how exactly does he hit the CB to maximize his chances to pot the shot (provided scratching isn't an issue)? Top-center (natural roll), top-outside, stun-outside, stun-center, etc.?

Which game is "harder" game? 8 ball or 9 ball? He can define "harder" however he likes.

Is it easy or hard to be you. In country or abroad is it easier to be a living legend? And why do people steal your chickens at home?

Maybe some day we can share some some Hennessees (sp?). Best of luck in all you do. You are a fine ambassador of the sport and a generous man. Little wonder you are respected around the world.

A fan.

Where does his wife live, and does he miss her when he is playing pool all over the world?

If Efren was not a champion pool player, what profession would he have liked to have gone into?

What is Efren's favorite dinner meal?

Did Efren used to view Jose Parica as a mentor before Efren's game advanced to champion level?

Pick one of my questions and then fire away. I gave a few that I am curious about.
