Reyes Takes Sixth San Miguel Asian 9-Ball Leg Title
May 9, 2006, 8:42 AM

Efren Reyes was the fan favorite at the first leg of the San Miguel Asian 9-Ball Tour, which took place May 5-7 at the Nguyen Du Sports Hall in Ho-Chin-Minh City, Vietnam. And “the Magician” didn’t disappoint, defeating Li He Wen of the Chinese Taipei, 11 - 6, in the finals to claim the trophy and the top prize of $10,000.

"Before the match, I knew I had a good chance but towards the middle I started to lose my confidence since I have taken bad safety shots," Li said. "Reyes is really an experienced player and you can't make too many mistakes when playing against him."

With this win, Reyes has now won six leg titles in the Asian Tour, which will travel to Bangkok, Thailand for the second leg on June 2 – 4, followed by Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Aug. 4-6 and Jakarta, Indonesia, Sept. 15-17.
