The most successful player from Brazil to compete on the World Snooker Tour, Igor Figueiredo has reached the last 16 stage of a full-ranking event three times and achieved a career-high ranking of 65 in September 2010.
Prior to his maiden season on the PIOS amateur circuit in 2009 Figueiredo had yet to play on a full-size snooker table, but upon turning professional a year later quickly showed his potential by qualifying for the televised stages of the World Open, losing to Mark Williams.
In 2017 he achieved his best results to date on the main tour as he reached the last 16 of both the Welsh Open and Gibraltar Open tournaments but was unable to retain his place on the main tour.
Two years later however, Figueiredo was able to triumph at the 2019 Pan American Snooker Championship, a result that earned him a return to the professional circuit from the start of the 2019/20 season.
In 2018, the Rio de Janeiro native also won the inaugural World Snooker Federation Seniors Championship with a 5-3 victory against Darren Morgan in Malta.
