Efren Reyes & Ralf Souquet Safety Battle
Efren made the best shot so far a 2 rail kick out of a dead hook, and Left Ralf in jail as he thinned the OB and the CB only rolled 3″ after the hit the CB rolled about 11′ before the hit, talk about touch.
Yeah, this shot was pretty special. Souquet played a masterful safety to send the two ball two rails under a cluster near the bottom right corner. While I don’t remember the exact position, the gist of it was this. Before Efren’s shot, the balls looked like this, and I’ve showed Efren’s kicking line:
The remarkable result after Efren’s slow speed two rail kick was this:
Then came Souquet’s masterful response, hooking back by kicking to the bottom rail, inducing Efren to sell out.
Souquet played it like this:
The lethal result was that the cue ball was left buried under the three ball cluster, and Efren was in big trouble. This sequence was the defensive highlight of the match, and clearly showcased the skills of two of the all-time greats. Ralf ran out on his very next turn in a rack that, if memory serves, gave him a 10-8 lead.
These guys are good!
