Maker of Joey Bautista Cues
I was there at Hollywood.Although he was not as successful overall in torunament play, I think head-to-head Parica has a winning record against Reyes in tournaments. I saw Jose beat Efren 13-4 in the finals of a big tournament at Hollywood Billiards in the late 90's/early 2000's with an unreal gear. And of course, Jose was the most feared 9-ball money player on the planet for a long time.
Efren had to sit for 2 hours because he was on the hot seat.
We went across the street and ate at the Thai restaurant.
Efren was full when he played the finals and could not concentrate.
Then, the week after, he won the Gabriel's Open in Las Vegas.
Won a few overall titles at the Derby City.
Efren went the finals of the US Open 4 years in a row.
Beat Jose in the semis in 1997.
Won the World 9 in 1999.
