STRETCHED TO THE LIMIT

LEGENDS BUSTAMANTE AND REYES SURVIVE THRILLERS ON EXCITING DAY 1 AT THE WORLD 9-BALL CHAMPIONSHIP IN DOHA

Story and Photo
by Ted Lerner

(Doha, Qatar)--When it comes to big names in the sport of pool, they don’t come much larger than Efren Reyes and Francisco Bustamante. And that’s why whenever the two Hall of Famers enter any arena around the world, they are usually met with opponents who are jacked to the gills looking for the big upset.

That’s what happened on day 1 at the 2011 World 9-ball Championship at the Al Sadd Sports Club in Doha, Qatar as first Reyes and then Bustamante were featured on Table 1. With several hundred Filipino overseas workers cheering their every rack from the stands overlooking the beautifully outfitted arena, both players were taken to the limit with thrilling down-to-wire matches, and both escaped victorious by the narrowest of margins.

The legend Reyes was given the honor of being first up on center table where he faced the very capable Mark Gray of Great Britain in the first match of the group stages. Gray had admitted at breakfast earlier in the day that he was itching to play Reyes and make a statement to the rest of the field that he was in it to win it. And for the first half of the match he did just that, as the Brit went up 6-2. Reyes, though, clawed his way back and tied the match at 7-7, then went up up 8-7 with a break and run. Gray cleared off a poor safety by Reyes in rack 15 to bring the match to a 1 rack decider. Reyes, though, made a ball on the break then coolly ran the rack for the victory.

“I played OK,” Reyes said immediately afterward. “Two times I didn’t make a ball on the break.” Asked if he thought he could win his second World 9-ball title, Reyes said; “I don’t know. This is very difficult. Too many good players are here.”

While the Magician went off to sign autographs and pose for photos with his legion of admirers, the defending champion Bustamante came into the arena in what looked on paper like an easy tune up match against overseas Filipino Caneda Villamor. Villamor, who works in nearby Saudi Arabia, is one of many Filipino pool pros who have migrated to the Middle East to teach pool for a living.

The race to 9 alternate break match looked at first to be going to plan as Bustamante moved ahead 5-2. Villamor, though, was clearly riding a wave of motivation playing against his famous countryman, and stormed back to cut the lead to 6-5. The two went back and forth for the next 30 minutes in what became a nervy and entertaining battle. Bustamante was leading 8-7 with Villamor pressing him in a safety battle. Then, facing what looked to be a sure safety play, Bustamante pulled a rabbit out of the hat when he hit a full table kick on the 6 ball, which collided with the 9 and sent the winning ball into the side pocket for the victory. It appeared to be a lucky shot, but Bustamante said he saw the possibility and went for it.

“I tried to make that 9-ball,” an obviously relieved Bustamante said afterward. When asked if he was surprised at how good his unknown opponent played the Hall of Famer responded: “Hey don’t forget, he’s a Filipino. All Filipinos play good. I’m just happy to win because now there’s not too much pressure.”

Both Bustamante and Reyes move to the winners side of their group and need just one win to move into the knockout stage of 64. The 128 players have been divided into 16 groups of 8, playing a double elimination format, race to 9, alternate Beak. 4 qualifiers (2 from winner’s brackets and 2 from loser’s brackets) will advance into the final round of 64 players which is single elimination, race to 11, alternate Break. The final will be a race to 13, alternate break.

48 out of the 128 player field saw action over the first two sessions. There were several other thrilling matches over the course of the first two sessions today as well. Manuel Gama of Portugal took down the Philippines Roberto Gomez 9-8. The 31 year old Gama, who’s ranked 27 on the Euro Tour, showed plenty of heart and nerves of steel as he dueled with the experienced Gomez down the stretch. Gama won despite having scratched on the break in the deciding rack.

Gama’s teammate Henrique Correia nearly made it a big day for Portugal but lost by a thread to China’s Fu Jan Bo 9-8.

In another nail biter, recent China Open winner Chris Melling of England barely got by the Philippines Antonio Gabica, 9-8. Gabica, who’s been living in Doha for the past 8 months working as a coach for the Qatar National Team, fought back from a 7-5 deficit, to go up 8-7. With 2 balls down on the break, the Filipino looked all clear to the finish line when he missed a 3-9 combo. Melling, who’s been playing super confident for several months now, cleared to tie up the match, then won the final rack for the hard fought victory.

There will be two more sessions on Saturday. The organizers have planned a lavish opening ceremony just before the start of the evening’s matches.

The 2011 World 9-ball championship has $250,000 in prize money on offer, with $36,000 going to the winner. The tournament will run daily through July 1.

LOSERS FEEL THE SQUEEZE

32 PLAYERS HEAD FOR THE EXITS ON PRESSURE FILLED DAY 2 AT THE WORLD 9-BALL CHAMPIONSHIP IN QATAR.

Story and Photo by Ted Lerner

(Doha, Qatar)--There was plenty of heartbreak and lots of relief as well inside the spectacularly appointed Al Sadd Sports Club in Doha, Qatar Sunday as Day 2 of the 2011World 9-ball championship has now been completed.

32 players saw their dreams of glory crash out , while 32 others got a much welcome reprieve as all of the matches on the losers side of each group bracket took place. The field of 128 players from over 40 countries around the world has now been trimmed to 96.

The final two sessions of the day saw several dramatic and pressure packed matches as players desperately tried to hang on to their dreams of moving on in the most prestigious pool tournament in the world. One trend that was clear is that the talent level across the globe is growing exponentially, especially in the Middle East. Guys you’d expect to win handily were be taken to the limit by unknowns from countries not normally considered pool breeding grounds.

The Philippines Roberto Gomez came into his match with Jordan’s Almed Naeem Ali as a massive favorite but quickly found himself in a dogfight for survival with the boyish looking 19 year old. The pair were tied at 7 and Gomez had the all clear for the lead but blew a shot on the 7 ball. Ali stepped up and cleared to go up 8-7 in the race to 9 and got himself a big cheer from the nice crowd on hand. Ali then broke for the win but got robbed when the cue ball got knocked in. Gomez looked confused and was clearly under pressure and eventually gave the table back with a poor safety. Ali was heading for the biggest win in Jordanian pool history when he scratched with just three balls on the table. After Gomez tied the match, the Filipino broke and ran for the lucky escape, leaving the youngster from Amman devastated.

Germany’s Thomas Engert survived to play another day when he squeaked by Canada’s John Morra 9-8. Filipino Francisco Felicilda, who works and plays out of the United Arab Emirates stayed alive in his group when he barely ousted Estonian Dennis Grabe, 9-8.

One match that seemed to catch the local crowd’s fancy was Qatar Abdulatif Fawal and Syria’s Mohamad Al Sofi. The two battled for nearly two hours and went right down to the wire. From 7-7, the pair were under so much pressure that they could barely hold their cues, and even simple straight in shots became major testers. Much to the delight of the many Qataris in the crowd, Fawal somehow managed to get his act together long enough to make the final two balls and one more chance to make it to the final 64.

Other players who put in fine performances and can still see daylight were Chinese Taipei brothers Ko Pin Yi and Ko Ping Chun, the Philippines Lee Van Corteza, the USA’s Hunter Lombardo, Oliver Ortmann of Germany, Tamoo Takano of Japan, Liu Haitao of China, and Mohamad Asfari of Syria.

The 2001 World 9-ball Championship continues in Doha on Monday with the winners from each bracket squaring off. The players have been divided into 16 groups of 8, playing a double elimination format, race to 9, alternate Beak. 4 qualifiers (2 from winner’s brackets and 2 from loser’s brackets) will advance into the final round of 64 players which is single elimination, race to 11, alternate Break. The final will be a race to 13, alternate break.

The 2011 World 9-ball championship has $250,000 in prize money on offer, with $36,000 going to the winner. The tournament will run daily through July 1.

MANILA, Philippines – Filipino billiards master Efren "Bata" Reyes displayed his mastery of the pool table by winning the 2011 One Pocket Championships on Sunday (Monday in Manila) in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Reyes, a top player of Aristeo "Putch" Puyat, edged American Cris Gentile, 5-2, in the finals to win the $8,000 top prize and championship trophy. Bata's win was confirmed by fellow cue artist Jun Almoite.

Gentile received the runner-up purse of $4,400. – Report by Marlon Bernardino

"one pocket" game in billiards is a game that requires careful planning and the virtuosity that efren possesses. one has got to be precise on where and how to maneuver the cue ball to gain the clearer advantage to pocket the balls.

back then, i used to watch efren played the carom games at the famous lucky 13 located at rizal avenue. one of the players that i really enjoyed watching efren played against was the equally brilliant in carom game (18-1) by the name mang sito. if there was one thing that i truly observed during their many matches, it was their control of the cue ball. though both of them displayed mastery of the game, the main deciding factor of their matches was the control of the cue ball. who has the more control over the cue ball, gained the advantage to do more scores. that's why i believe that in a "one pocket" game in billiards, efren has the advantage because he knows precisely how and where to maneuver his cue ball in order to clean up the target balls.
