2018: Beats Neil Robertson at the Crucible to reach the last 16 of the World Championship for the third time.
2022: Enjoys his best career moment as he wins his first ranking title after 27 years as a pro at the Gibraltar Open, beating Kyren Wilson 4-2 in the final. It’s a remarkable turnaround in form given that he had won only three matches during the 2021/22 season before that week.
2023: Makes his third career 147 at the German Masters and goes on to reach the semi-finals before a narrow 6-5 reverse against Ali Carter. Enjoys the best moment of his career as he beats Shaun Murphy 9-7 in the final of the Welsh Open to win his second ranking title. The result also earns him the BetVictor Series bonus of £150,000.
