Ursenbacher reached the last 64 of a full ranking event for the first time at the 2014 Wuxi Classic thanks to a 5-4 win over Kyren Wilson in the qualifying round.


He became snooker's only Swiss professional by coming through Q School in 2013. He played superbly throughout event two, losing just one frame in four matches and scoring a top break of 140. He beat nine-time Ladies World Champion Reanne Evans 4-1, then in the final round he saw off experienced former pro Paul Wykes 4-0.


Ursenbacher has won a host of junior titles in his native Switzerland and has won his national championship twice.
