Where did you read that?Except he stole that from Wade Crane
The difference between the late 80's and mid 90's is significant. He was in the depths of alcohol and drug usage at that point in the 90's. If Los Alamitos Race Track had been further away from Hard Times than it was he would have been inn even more action.
Even past his prime he was a force to be reckoned with. I remember a Sunday tournament when Keith came in and rushed over to the table Efren was playing on and threw down 1K. They moved to a another table, as did most of the spectators. Keith won the first race but I had to leave midway through the 2nd match but I heard that Efren ended up winning the cash. Talk about polar opposites. Keith and Efren.
I talked to his brother one day at HT and he swore Jam saved Keith's life and I know that I for one am very happy about that. Efren and Keith were both magical but in entirely different ways.
