The Legendary Z Shot of The Magician Efren "Bata" Reyes

In my opinion, one of the greatest Philippine sportsmen ever is Efren "Bata" Reyes, who was given the nickname "The Magician" for his otherworldly ability to pocket balls that no mere mortal could do.

This Z-shot as it has been coined is one for the books. Not only did Efren hit a seemingly impossible shot, he did so under immense pressure, as it was 12-all in a race to 13 in the final of the 1995 Sands Regency Open 9-ball tournament. A Reyes miss would essentially give his opponent, Earl Strickland, a clear table and would essentially cost him the title. Instead, he came up with some of his greatest pool-table magic. Check it out.
