This billiards player uses his foot to perform trick shot
billiards

Efren “Bata” Reyes is known as The Magician, and it looks like his magic has been passed down to other billiards players in the country.

Take for example Jeffrey Prieto from Quezon Province, who often wows his audience by executing a trick shot using his feet.

In Chino Gaston’s report on “24 Oras,” Thursday, Prieto was shown using his left foot as a stand for his cue stick, a technique he learned from a friend.

“Minsan nakakita ako ng naglalaro ng paa, ginaya ko hanggang sa naturuan ako ng kumpare ko,” Prieto said.

[“Once I saw someone who plays with his foot, then I tried to copy it until my friend taught me.”]

But Prieto is more than just his unorthodox trick shot. He has also competed in local and international tournaments and even went against his idol, The Magician himself.

“Masarap ‘yung pakiramdam na Pilipino lang gumagawa noon (foot trick shot). Sa ibang bansa kasi walang gumagawa noon,” he said.

[“It’s nice that only Filipinos can do that. No one in other countries does that shot.”]
