Of course, they beat him, too, but Earl would so often hang an 11-2 set on them that it was almost ridiculous.

My first reaction is that Earl would be way to much for Skyler as he shoots today, but there's one factor that's hard to account for, specifically that much less was known about the nine ball break back then, but if we ignore that, Earl in his prime beats Skyler in his prime very easily.
Sky isnít in his prime yet. I think we may see huge things from him soon. However, I agree with most, that Earl in his prime smashes Sky today. And most everyone else.

I'll go a step further. Almost all of Earl's major titles came before his switch to Cuetec in, I'm guessing, 1999. I do believe, though, that his stellar effort at the 2002 World Nine Ball Championships, among the very finest performances of his entire career, was with a Cuetec, but I'm not certain of it.

I heard Earl say that until Efren came along, he never even thought about playing safe on a kick-he just tried to "hit" the ball.

Efren taught the American players how to hit the bottom of the ball and play safe on kick shots. They just weren't doing that until he came along. He revolutionized the way we had played 9-Ball up until that point. Efren was two speeds above all our top players when he first arrived here. After maybe a year of watching carefully how he played they had caught up with him though. All the top players used to sit and watch Efren play his matches and study his game.

Pretty much the same for most players back then. ER raised kicking to an art-form.
