The Top Ten

1
Efren Reyes - The Magician
Out of this list, Efren is head and shoulders above the rest. He has got to be the all around best player ever to have played the game. Where Earl would probably get the 9 ball as an individual sport, Mosconi the 14.1 individual leader etc... Efren would be all around champion.
Reyes was The One who teach the world how to play pool, no one else. When he went international, the players who thought that they were already at pinnacle of pool playing technique suddenly became amateurs.
Best all around player in pocket billiard. Efren Reyes can play 8,9,10 straight pool one pocket banks and snooker and he his always in the top 5 can you name me a player who can do that?
[Newest]Efren is A Filipino

2Earl Strickland - The Pearl
EARL "THE PEARL" STRICKLAND is very smart to adjust the placement of the cue ball, and a few times I watched the game with a big score as the Tar Podcasts and Color of money, he really has a resistance of game balance, for example, the second time against the best players Shane Van Boening world namely, Shane is very frustrating to see Earl and mental abilities. Then the World pool association is very stupid, do not see and calculate rankings based only ten ball games with a maximum score of 10-18 but 40 to 70, when only a small score game pool could say luck during a break, the term with score 10, young people can only be won when playing pool random origin or ability unsightly eye. But if the score 40 -70 mencaai expertise can someone look stupid smart or lucky miss.EARL STRICKLAND world player of the era to era...
-- Earl Strickland had a very unusual ability between players host of others, I was very impressed and Earl Strickland terrible looking game, he was the best pool player of all time are legendary. Especially he was very good at inserting balls and arrange the white ball, if we see him as very simple game once playing pool. The legend Earl Strickland --
When I see the nature of the controversy was a very common thing, like when playing in Masconi CUP, fans of Europe very sissy, and should be watered wear sewage, and when Toni Drago involved angry, when I was there, it was my word of billiard sticks and my face broke into toni bastard!. The best player was Earl Strickland, fast game style, not like the others, had long thought the ball did not go in the end, that's stupid, like ika immonen..
[Newest]Earl is the greatest in history!

3Shane Van Boening
Best in the USA as far as I'm concerned. He's proven this by being atop the money won board.

Best ever? My nod goes to Mosconi. Too bad there's no time machine for them to match up.
Daryl peach, you got to be kidding me laugh out loud.
Eagle eye, best sharp shooter I've ever seen.

4Mika Immonen - The Ice Man
Mika Immonen, the Ice Man from Finland is one of the most talented players in this sport. With his amazing technique and stroke, he is in the high end elite.

6Francisco Bustamante
Another legend from the Philippines!

georgefemic

He defeated Efren Reyes so many times already. He can actually beat everybody with his ability to break with four balls going in.

7Darren Appleton
He never gives in. He is mentally strong, he doesn't know when he's beat. He will get even better with time. A legend in the making.
Easy Darren has come in and won everything he is the new Efren beating all those americans on their home soil at their own game
Darren is a pleasure to watch. Smooth stroke and quality cue ball control. Very humble guy as well.

8Alex Pagulayan
Yes, he should be top 3
