Yes, this is the big worry. Dan Harrington, pro poker player, had a fantastic line about the difficulties in playing well in long sessions and how he has to play a style that fits his energy level. His line (as a man in his 60s): "I've got the energy of a 21 year old....for 3 hours a day."I just hope he can hold up with the amount of matches he had to play today. The match against Alex was mentally draining.
He had laser eye surgery in his 50s. But eyes keep changing anyway so he may have needed follow up procedures. Luckily you don't need to be eagle-eyed to play one pocket to a master level.Efren is 68 and I'm 75 and I need glasses to see the balls clearly.
Does Efren have contacts or has he had Lasek?
Or are his eyes still sharp?
Whatever jerk! I get things wrong from time to time.Some idiot on here yesterday said Busty may be the best ever at one-pocket. I bet that guy feels stupid now.
Ha! Thought there was beef brewin for a sec there. Then saw that sometimes ppl have heated exchanges with themselves while dwellin in a basement.Whatever jerk! I get things wrong from time to time.
I remember Buddy Hall once saying, while doing commentary, "It's okay to talk to yourself. It's even okay to answer yourself. You just can't answer by saying, huh???"Ha!

Back in the mid 80's a real good player(came in 9th one year at the U.S. open)told me that Efren did things with the cue ball he had never seen before.Efren really is the most entertaining, mentally amazing player in my lifetime by a LONG stretch. I've just never seen anything like him and enjoy watching him all through his career on youtube. There is something to learn in his every turn at the table. I wish him the very best.

Put some horns on him and he's the devilI watched him from tableside about four matches in '07. Some of the shit he put on the cb borders on sorcery.
