Summary

Thepchaiya Un-Nooh turned professional after winning the 2008 IBSF World Amateur Championship in Austria.

His initial stint on the Main Tour only lasted a season, but he rebounded onto the pro circuit in 2012 and has been an ever-present since.

During his second spell, Un-Nooh has been widely regarded as one of the most naturally gifted players of his generation.

Boasting a lightning quick style and an attacking strategy, the Thai has become one of the most popular contenders to route for from those outside the core group of usual ranking event winners.

After capturing the Six Red World Championship on home soil in 2015, Un-Nooh endeared himself to snooker fans for unfortunate reasons.

At the UK Championship that year he missed the final black off the spot – a miss that cost him £44,000 in prize money.

Later in the same season the inexplicable happened, as he again missed the last ball for a maiden maximum break during the World Championship qualifiers.

Redemption finally came not long after, with Un-Nooh finally compiling the perfect break in the Paul Hunter Classic of 2016.

When in form, Un-Nooh’s A game is a match for anybody on the tour, but consistency has been his biggest foe – highlighted by extreme fluctuations in his ranking position.

Un-Nooh’s best period was in 2019 when he triumphed in the Snooker Shoot Out – a quick-fire event tailor-made for his best attributes.

In the same year he also reached the final of the World Open, just missing out on glory to world champion Judd Trump.

These performances helped him rise into the top 16 in the world rankings for the first time, and he reached a career-high of number 15 in 2020.
