May 2015: Accu-Stats "Make It Happen" 8-Ball Invitational
Player: Shane Van Boening
Every sport has moments. Bobby Thomson's 1951 "Shot Heard Round the World" that let the Giants win the pennant. Michael Jordan's game-winner against Cleveland in 1989, now known as "The Shot." Or Dwight Clark pulling down "The Catch" from Joe Montana in the 1982 NFC Championship.
For pool fans, "The Shot" refers to the final of the 1995 Regency Open, where Efren Reyes pulled off an incredible full-table, two-rail kick shot. On an object ball nearly frozen to the middle of the foot rail. To get perfect shape for his next shot. In the case game.
