The Magician Efren “Bata” Reyes defeats World Champion Wunderkind Wu Jian Qing – 30 Dec. 2011

Efren “Bata” Reyes is called the Magician because of his amazing skill, especially with his trick shots. To see him live, as we did in 2011, was astounding.

Bata was not expected to win against Wu, the young champion, but he played with confidence and aplomb.

Bata led early but we wondered if he was tiring because Wu was catching up. Then Wu scratched to the delight of the hometown crowd.

Despite the long match, Bata was still friendly with his fans. Truly an amazing gentleman.
