Mark Selby, a professional snooker player from England, is known for his impressive skills on the green baize.
He started his professional career at a young age of 16 in 1999, after winning the England Under-15 Championship in 1998.
Since then, Selby has achieved numerous accolades and accomplishments throughout his career.
In 2005, Selby made his debut at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, where the World Snooker Championship is held annually.
He reached his first World Championship final in 2007, but unfortunately was the runner-up to John Higgins.
However, Selby didn’t let the loss dampen his spirits, and he came back stronger the following year.
In 2008, he won his first major title at the Masters, and his first ranking title at the Welsh Open.
Selby’s biggest achievements came between 2014 and 2017 when he won the World Championship three times in four years.
He proved to be a dominant force on the green baize during that period.
In September 2011, he became world number one for the first time in his career, and he held onto the top ranking position for over four years between February 2015 and March 2019.
The snooker star has also achieved an impressive feat of compiling over 750 century breaks in professional competitions, which includes four maximum breaks.
Apart from snooker, Selby is also a skilled pool player. In 2006, he won the World Eight-ball Pool Federation championship, and in 2015, he was the runner-up at the Chinese Eight-ball World Championship.
These accomplishments make him the only man to have been world champion in both snooker and pool.
