Samm Diep on Efren Reyes

Here's a video from Samm Diep, a reporter for InsidePool magazine and the woman behind The Tip Jar pool blog. She's also a contributor to the new PoolSynergy project, in which various pool writers contribute an article each month about a common theme. In Samm's contribution, she discussed when to play position in the side pocket versus playing position for the corner pocket.

I know the video isn't technically about pool history, which is what I focus on here. However, it's about Efren Reyes, a Hall of Famer who's played plenty of historic matches. The video caught my attention, in that Efren is so infrequently interviewed — at least by the English-speaking press. Efren carries around arthritis cream. Who knew?
