San Miguel Asian 9-Ball Tour a Hit in Jakarta
Reyes Escapes Upset; Valle, Wu Advance to Quarterfinals
Number-one seed Efren “Bata” Reyes proved that he wasn’t just a magician—he also showed that he was an escape artist as well after surviving two close calls during the historic first day of the San Miguel Asian 9-Ball Tour at the packed Hanggar Billiard and Recreation Center in Jakarta.
The Filipino struggled past former World Pool champion Kunihiko Takahashi of Japan 9-8, then came from behind to edge hometown bet Robby Suarly 9 – 8 in the second round and advance to the quarterfinals of the event organized by ESPN STAR Sports.
The player known as “The Magician” trailed Suarly 7-8, but the Indonesian made a crucial error in the 16th rack as the cue ball fell o­n the side pocket. Reyes then capitalized o­n his opponent’s miscue as he took the next two racks to close out the match. Reyes will meet Kuo Po Cheng of Chinese Taipei in the round of eight.
