Hi there fellow pool junkies.

I just ran a count of the 128 pool players entered in this years World Pool Championship.Each player lists the cue of his preference and who his favorite player is.I only did one count and here's the results:

FAVOURITE PLAYER

Reyes 75
Strickland 13
Bustamante 12
Archer 6
Varner 5
Ortman 5

It's no surprise, Reyes kick's aS$ here.WOW!!, 75 out of 128 players pick Efren as their favourite.Earl finishing 2nd might surprise some and not because of his obvious talent.
Steve Davis even lists Earl as on of his favourites.

CUE PREFERENCE

Predator 39 (5)
Schon 10
Bear 9
Joss 4
Gina 3
John Parris 3

Out of the 39 Predators used, 5 of them are shaft only with a different butt. John Parris is a snooker cue preferred by some of the English players including Steve Davis.

ps. Ya, I know......I need to get a life
Take care RJ

Great Post!!!! I was looking last night, I didn't have the time or patience to go through all of them, but they did all seem to pick Efren as their favorite. One thing that shocked me was Efren's cue. He claims in the write up that it's a Philippine made cue, but for the last few years I have known Efren to shoot with a Judd. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm I wonder what that was all about?
