Summary

Jimmy Robertson didn’t crack the Main Tour until his third attempt, dropping off the circuit after just one season in both of his first two tries.

The Englishman first turned professional back in 2002, but it wasn’t until seven years later that he established himself as a more consistent player.

He was the top English amateur in 2009, winning the prestigious English Amateur Championship in the process, and soon after he graduated to professional life on a permanent basis.

It was a good time for lower-ranked players, as the beginning of the Barry Hearn era initiated an influx of extra tournaments on the calendar.

Robertson quickly leapfrogged his way into the top 64 of the world rankings, but after that his progress stalled.

MORE PLAYER PROFILES:

A talented break-builder when in form, Robertson had poor consistency, and he particularly struggled when given the opportunity on a TV table.

That is, perhaps, what made his special run at the 2018 European Masters so surprising.

By this point of his career, Robertson had only one quarter-final appearance in a ranking event to show for his efforts.

But in Belgium he conjured an incredible week of snooker from practically nowhere to walk away with the title.

Robertson won his first four games in deciders, and he subsequently overcame Marks Allen and King to reach the final.

After racing into a 5-0 lead against Joe Perry, he was able to maintain his buffer and eventually run out a 9-6 champion to secure a maiden title at the elite level.

Robertson rose to a career-high of number 21 in the rankings a year later, but his form quickly declined, and in 2021 he needed a deciding-frame World Championship qualifying victory to safeguard his tour survival.
