2002 saw Shaun enter the World Snooker Championships for the first time. Having received training form former world Champions such as Willie Thorne, Steve Prest and Ray Reardon it is not surprising that Shaun has gone on to win such titles as the UK Championship, the World Open, the Malta Cup and of course the World Championship which he won in 2005.
