Bio

Alexander Ursenbacher is Switzerland’s second-ever professional player and in 2017 reached the semi-finals of a world ranking event for the first time in his career.

Having enjoyed an initial two-year spell on the main tour from 2013-2015 following success at Q School, he regained his place at snooker’s top table two years later by claiming victory at the EBSA European Under-21 Championship against Jackson Page.

His pro breakthrough came at the English Open in 2017 where he defeated players including former world champion Shaun Murphy on his way to reaching the semi-finals, eventually losing out to Kyren Wilson.

In 2019 he recorded one of the biggest wins of his career at the Welsh Open, defeating Ronnie O’Sullivan 4-2 at the last 32 stage. He subsequently retained his place on the main tour by again coming through Q School in June.
