How Reyes got so good in 3 cushion billiards... - 07-17-2019, 08:54 PM

Reyes said that he had to quick playing pocket billiards at one point because he couldn't get any action anymore. Hard to believe from a country where players lived and die in action!

So he turned to 3 cushion... and got so good in it too.

The shot at 2:07 is just ridiculous.

I don’t know that he has any significant three cushion experience. He’s just awesome and can get into a three cushion match, 14.1, snooker, and probably Pyramids. His other main game was 18.2 balkline, not 3C according to anything I’ve read up on him. Do you have a reference?

Freddie <~~~ can barely get to one cushion

reyes is on vid in an interview with some woman saying balkline is his favorite game

18.2 is what the americans called it back when they still played it

its known as 47.2 in europe and asia where its played today

47cm, roughly 18.5 inches
2 points per zone

was good enough for a cue tap from the 5x world champ that also holds 44 world cup titles

so yea, it was nice
rail first is always much harder


what might be more impressive is the 160k views this vid got in the day it was published

the description is strange


Efren Manalang Reyes, is a Filipino professional pool player. A winner of over 70 international titles, Reyes is the first man in history to win World Championships in two different disciplines.

ceulemans held multiple world titles in multiple disciplines of carom in the 80s

if he means reyes won a carom world title, i think not, but am wrong all the time

Perhaps it meant; billiards and pocket-billiards as disciplines?

While I watch billiards on occasion, the commentary is often not in English so it becomes hard to follow the events. I tend to pay more attention to the players fundamentals than the overarching rivalries and history between players and events.

This is why jump cues should be banned. Skill should matter.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

A topic that arises from time to time on the forum is whether the Johnston City events were world championships. For those that say they were, Harold Worst would be counted as a world champion in both pool and three cushion.
