The second annual FatBoy 10-Ball Challenge crowned a new champion, “The Magician” Efren Reyes. Reyes went undefeated in the 16 player $5,000 added invitational event. The format was single-elimination, $500 entry, race-to-15 10-ball.

As the field quickly shrank, the final two men standing were Reyes and Virginia state champ, Brandon Shuff. Reyes, feeling pretty comfortable from his many matches on the Accu-stats table, quickly jumped to a 6-0 lead against Shuff.  

Neither player was at top gear but still strung together several impressive shots for the packed audience. Reyes continued to pull ahead until the score was 13-5, when Shuff made a small comeback. Unfortunately, his efforts were not enough. Reyes got on the hill and closed out the set, 15-8.
