Bio

Among China’s most experienced professional players Xiao Guodong is a two-time ranking event finalist who has achieved a career-high world ranking of 19 to date.

A two-time PIOS event winner and former Asian Under-21 champion at amateur level, Xiao turned professional for a single season in 2007 before regaining his tour card two years later.

Xiao made steady progress up the world ranking list before his breakthrough came at the Shanghai Masters in 2013. There he won eight matches to contest the first all-Chinese ranking event final with Ding Junhui, who ultimately ran out a 10-6 winner.

He is also a two-time Shoot Out finalist in 2015 (invitational event) and 2017, who has reached a further three full-ranking event semi-finals.

He has qualified for the final stages of the World Championship on three occasions, notably defeating Ryan Day 10-4 in 2017 to reach the last 16 before losing 13-6 to eventual champion Mark Selby.
