Until 2009 his best runs were to the last 48 of tournaments, which he has achieved in the 2007 Welsh Open, 2007 China Open, 2007 UK Championship, and 2008 Shanghai Masters. He managed to reach the last 32 of an event for the first time at the Welsh Open with victories over Peter Lines, Andrew Higginson and Stuart Bingham but was beaten 5-0 by Stephen Maguire. However the remainder 2008/2009 season was poor and saw him in danger of dropping off the main tour, however he was awarded a wildcard from World Snooker which enabled him to compete on the tour for the 2009/2010 season.
