He has brought home a world trophy every year after he returned from Professional stint in 2014. More astonishingly, He has won a world crown each year since 2003! :flushed: He has the most number of world crowns in cue sports.


It’s amazing how Advani keeps raising the bar and in the short format of billiards, this is Pankaj Advani’s fifth title in the last six years. The Indian cueist has now won more world titles in his sport than anyone else.This title was his fourth on the trot in the 150-up format and, interestingly, beating the same opponent for the second year in a row by an identical score.

Generally the other cueist participate in only one format but Advani concentrates on both snooker and billiards which is a big plus point and thus he has achieved which many think is unimaginable. He’ll now look to continue his great form at the upcoming IBSF World Six-Red Snooker and the World Team Snooker Championships.
