Efren “Bata” Reyes ends up with SEAG bronze in carom

The Magician tried to pull out all his tricks, but father time has finally caught up with him.

Efren “Bata” Reyes bowed out of gold medal contention after suffering a defeat to Dinh Hai Ngo of Vietnam, 14-100, in the semifinals of the 30th Southeast Asian Games men’s one-cushion carom at the Manila Tent Hall, Friday

The four-time 8-ball world champion never got the chance to weave his magic on the pool, as Dinh delivered a stable performance, knocking down point after point.

When the Magician finally found momentum on the playing field, the Vietnamese had already built an insurmountable cushion.

Still, the 65-year-old proved that he can still impose his will in the sport where he’s considered a legend. A testament to that was his display of dominance in the face of Thongchai Punyawee of Thailand, 100-37, that sealed his place on the podium.
