- The magician's nickname speaks for it! Won so many accolades that should be bestowed only upon the greatest player. Who won the biggest purse in billiards? Efren Reyes world 8-Ball tournament... where he beat Rodney Morris.

- I don't really care for this guy and his antics but I have to mention Earl Strickland as being the best.

BEST POOL PLAYER EVER
- Benjamin Marosm may be the greatest LIVING player. Mosconi however won 15 world championships and still holds the highest straight pool run of 526 balls at a 4 ball per minute pace. Reyes is great but he still has to match those accomplishments to become the number 1 all time player.

BEST POOL PLAYER EVER
- RON DOOLEY THE BEST FROM STAUNTON,VA.! BEST TRICKSHOTS ,RUNS OVER 100 MANY TIMES 8 BALL CHAMPION!
- —Guest ASHLEY
- Efren Reyes hands down. If all greats played him in their prime, Efren would come out on top. Each time, everytime. His creativity and mastery of 6th sense physics is phenomenal. Humble in life but formidable on the table, Efren whips out some shots others consider suicidal or a sure scratch only to drop it deliberately into the pocket.

- Chan Whitt is quite possibly the best pool player the world will ever see -Mike Massie
- —Guest Dan Sykes
Best Pool Player
- I will stick with Willy Mosconi. If he played Efren Reyes, Willy would find a way to beat him in 9 or 8 ball.

- norman hitchcock at the old trueloves poolhall in okc broke everybody who came to play in the 60s .he didnt like to travell much or he would be more well known.

- Craig Stephens 60s to 70s was without the best pool player that has ever lived He was Jimmy Hendrix in the pool world Craig Stephens is King of Kings on a pool table I've seen them all!! He spotted top players 7and 8 playing 9 ball He was a pool God!! He played for days at a time!! I'ts a shame there's not films of him not missing a ball for hours at a time He carried a cue ball in his pocket to messure his shots, I can't say in words what i've seen this pool God do !!!!!!!~ . ..

Best of the Best
- Mosconie was alright but pretected his reputation. Efren Reyes was the best for a long while. Buddy hall shot his lights when efren first got states, playing 10-ball a ten ahead for 10 G's. Buddy was a student of the greatest all-around player ever. Vernon Elliot. He made earl cry everytime they played. Vernon busted Earl and Earl would break down in tears and cry. Vernon beat Mike sigel and his stakehorses out of 60 g's in one night.Towards the end sigel was so erratic Vernon played safeties on him just to humiliate him even when the out was there and for the taking. Vernon beat bugs 4 times getting 9-8 at full banks. And he won somewhere around the neighborhood of 900 dimes over a three day period in detroit. he beat truman even, doing everything. He beat shannon and his Daddy out of 20 thousand. Beat Mike carella. Best 9-ball player ever was chuck morgan he gave jersey jack the 7 for life. Riggie played about archer's speed! Archer would need the 7 from chuck. Vern beat C. w/the 8
one of the best pool players ever
- I saw craig play many times he could hours and never mis s a ball this was in the mid 60s to the early 70s I believe in his prime he was unbeatable!!

impossible to answer
- Too many great players out there. No one person dominated the game. Everyone can be beaten at any time. Some great talents were jonny ervolino, nick varner,mike siegal, buddy hall, efren reyes, george mcculloch jr, johnny archer etc.
