Ageless Magician delights Cebuanos, beats Amit, 7-4

CEBU’S pride Rubilyn Amit and the legendary cue artist Efren “Bata” Reyes were in Cebu to treat the Cebuanos to an exhibition game at the Casino Español de Cebu. Inc. last Thursday night.

The player-coach tandem of Amit and Reyes played with members of Casino Español de Cebu in a 9-ball doubles before the winner-take-all 9-ball singles at the Salon de España room.

The ageless Reyes, also known as The Magician, showed what he’s made of, beating Amit 7-4 to walk away with the P50,000 cash purse.

Amit is preparing for her next big competition, which is the International 9-Ball Championship in Taiwan in March.

“My next event is for the world ranking and it’s really a big deal tournament. Playing against Tatay Efren is helping me and is good for my practice,” the Cebuana said.
