Years a Pro
Best victory & why
Beat Darren Appleton in his pomp 17-14. He was one of the best players at the time and to beat him over a long distance was a great achievement.
Most feared opponent & why
Don't fear any player – I love the challenge whoever the opponent is.
Ambitions in the sport?
Just to win a match these days. I'm more concerned with growing the IPA.
Advice to any up and coming players
Believe in your ability – we are not all like Ronnie O Sullivan.
Why the IPA?
So many reasons but ultimately the best place to play competitive pool who have the best interests of the players at its core
