POOL maestro Efren “Bata” Reyes dumped Kuwait’s Bader Al Awadi, 9-2, Monday and led six other Filipinos into the round of 64 of the 2012 World 9-Ball Championship at the Al Sadd Sports Club in Doha, Qatar.

Reyes, still steady and deadly at 57, advanced to the tough knockout stage along with compatriots Francisco “Django” Bustamante, Ronnie Alcano, Lee Vann Corteza, Carlo Biado, Roberto Gomez and Antonio Gabica.

Bustamante, already enshrined into the billiards Hall of Fame like Reyes, bested Kuwait’s Abdullah Al Yousef, 9-4, while two-time world champion and last year’s runner-up Alcano survived American Hunter Lombardo, 9-8.

World No. 8 Corteza trounced countryman Marlon Caneda, 9-5, while the No. 12 Biado routed Czechoslovakia’s Roman Hybler, 9-3.

Gomez cruised to a 9-1 victory over Qatar’s Mohammad Saeed even as Gabica squeaked past Estonia’s Denis Grabe, 9-7.

Apart from Caneda, four other Filipinos, including the fancied former world No. 1 Dennis Orcollo, dropped to the losers’ bracket.
