It's obvious that Efren is #1, so he doesn't need my vote(s).
Considering all games (1-P, 14.1, 9B, 8B, etc.), Pagulayan probably deserves top billing.

Pagulayan-5

Mike, you are correct.
As the years go by, the stories of 100-ball runners begin to multiply.
Pool fans like to romanticize the past, which is fun, but not fact.
