In the category of ‘legends of pool’, these two players are in a class of their own. Efren “Bata” Reyes and Earl “The Pearl” Strickland, both inductees to the BCA Hall of Fame and known for their expansive list of major title wins, are set to play a three-day all-around challenge match at NYC’s Steinway Billiards in Astoria, NY, coming up on January 14-16.
With Strickland being the house pro at Steinway, he is sure to have a strong group of supporters attending…and it goes without saying that Reyes is an all-time favorite to many fans, and will draw a great crowd to the event.
The three-day mega challenge will feature 8-Ball, 9-Ball, and 10-Ball, and each will be a race to 15. The winner of each set will be awarded $3,000.
NYC Grind is pleased to once again be teaming up to co-produce a live stream for this event with Inside Pool Magazine, which can be viewed on InsidePool.tv via PPV. The PPV price will be $10 per day, or $20 for all three, and admission to watch in-person at Steinway will be the same prices.
