The interview was conducted at the AMF-Puyat Superbowl at the Makati Cinema Square in Makati City. It highlights Efren Bata Reyes’ career, including his childhood, money game matches, local and international wins, rise from poverty to beco
ming a local hero, his reputation as the “god of pool”, and more!

Efren Bata Reyes GraphicFor those not in the know, Cheche Lazaro of The Probe television program is a Filipino broadcast journalist and the Founding President of Probe Productions Inc. A pillar of broadcast journalism in the Pool Capital of the World, I remember watching her, Howie Severino and Luchi Cruz-Valdez, when they were still together in the television program The Probe Team on GMA-7.

And I guarantee that everyone who will watch this episode will be glued to their seats from start to finish as they listen to Efren's witty remarks and quotes! And I kid you not!
