This is a tough one to sort out. It has always been my opinion that there is no such thing as a GOAT in pool/billiards because of the many different types of games that are played. Some of the great players excelled in one or two games while others excelled in other games. Too hard to call.

There are probably at least 10 players that could arguably be called the GOAT.

Efren 5

Even if others win more money, or win certain events more times, I think it's ok to factor in
"intangibles" when talking about the greatness of a player.

Stuff like individual clutch moments and shots, how they conducted themselves,
how they innovated, their ability to bring admiration and respect
to themselves and the sport.

He's a legend who pulls off highlight reel trick shots in tournaments, and is humble
and funny and displays great sportsmanship. That's part of his greatness.

Efren 5. To me, everyone else will always be second best.


10 years ago we had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope and Johnny Cash. Now we have no Jobs, no Hope and no Cash.

I was arrested and the judge said life in prison, or you can join an APA league. I wish now that I had taken the prison term.
