Bata Reyes braces for tougher foes after 'lucky' win

KUALA LUMPUR — A day after bowing out of the doubles event in English billiards, Efren "Bata" Reyes reached the quarterfinals in singles competition in the Southeast Asian Games on Wednesday.

He easily dismantled Vietnam's Tran Leanh Tuan, 3-0 (100-0, 100-60, 100-58), at Kuala Lumpur Convention Center's Hall 4 here.

It was a complete turnaround from his doubles performance, where Reyes and Francisco dela Cruz bowed to Vietnam in three frames as well.

"Swerte lang 'yun kanina," Reyes said on Wednesday afternoon, following his victory. "'Yung nakalaban namin, medyo 'yun ang pinakamahina ata."

Tuan was one half of the Vietnamese pair that defeated Reyes and dela Cruz on Tuesday, but "The Magician" said he and his partner could have won that match if not for a few unlucky breaks.
