Best ranking event performance: Quarter-finals

Career highlights:

2016: Competing as an amateur, reaches the quarter-finals of the Indian Open, knocking out Mark Williams and Robert Milkins before losing to Shaun Murphy.
2019: Earns a place on the World Snooker Tour for the first time at the age of 43, thanks to a 4-0 win over Sean Maddocks in the final round of Q School event one.
2020: Reaches the last 32 of the European Masters in Austria, notably beating Ryan Day 5-0 before losing to Barry Hawkins.
2021: Claims the biggest title of his career as he dethrones defending champion Jimmy White 5-3 in the final at the Crucible Theatre to win the World Seniors Snooker Championship. That also earns him a spot at the Champion of Champions, where he loses to Judd Trump.
2022: Regains his pro tour card as one of the top four players on the one-year ranking list (outside the official top 64) during the 2021/22 season.
