Efrens run through dcc that was so dominant, accustats had to combine 2 matches to have a DVD that was over an hour long.

All the 2008 us open 1p matches from csi.

Shannon v. Reyes @southern classic.

Me, beating anyone.

Like the classic Earl vs Efren match, the SVB vs Lion match has it all...
...great shooting and a dramatic come-back.
....gotta get it from TAR


Lionize your game.

Donny Mills vs SVB

Dennis vs Chohan 1-2

Color of Money obviously, even though I don't find myself going back and watching it the way I do with other old matches.

Landon beating Earl

Color Of Money, Earl vs Efren

Danny D. vs Ronnie - One Pocket

All the Robocop vs TRex matches

A personal favorite is Kimmer vs Earl.. they played
three sets 9 ball for the final, Kimmer got it.

I second this one, if you can fade Earl's whining trying to get to Landon, you'll get a spectacular performance by Shuffet.

Best match I ever saw was one that somehow Pat Fleming missed recording while on his dinner break:

1998 U.S. Open Hot Seat match between Buddy Hall and Tang Hoa. At 9-9 Tang failed to hit a rail, but the ref didn't call it, leaving Buddy a fraction of an inch from the rail, jacked up with no easy shot and no way to play safe.

Buddy studied it for a good 2 or 3 minutes, then calmly jacked up and made a great short rail bank into the far corner pocket. He then finished off the rack and broke and ran the next game to close out the set.

They met again in the finals, but after Tang jumped out to an early lead, Buddy took control and won by something like 13 to 5. ACCU-STATS got that one, but they missed the far better match that had preceded it. I'm glad I was there to see it in person.

The first time Earl and SVB played race to 100 on 10 footer. The events leading up to Earl wearing earmuffs. The gear Earl caught the next day was unbelievable. He made that 10 footer look like a bar table.

Efren vs Rempe .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4maz6bcF3WQ&t=1432s
It was so exciting, The Miz and the crowd lost it at the end .
Jimmy Reid and other pros in the background as well.
The place was packed .
Sad that the Commerce Casino no longer hosts pro tournaments .

As others have said, the Color of Money - Efren vs. Earl. Fantastic ending. Some amazing pool from both of them.

Sigel v. Zuglan 150 and out at the 1992 (I think) US 14.1 Open in New York.

Alex vs. SVB TAR (amazing comeback performance).

Varner vs. Sigel (the "Miss"). Another amazing comeback performance with a surprise ending.

Yep, I remember that one... Efren's cue ball control was perfect.

No casinos hosting tournaments any more, but
that's probably due to NO tours. Commerce Casino, Bicycle Club, etc.
man, we used to have some POOL in Cali.
