Dark Horses – Jack Lisowski – 6/7/19
Name: Jack Lisowski
Birthplace: Cheltenham, England
Years Professional: 9
Current Ranking: 11th
Ranking Event Successes: Runner-up in 2018 Riga Masters and 2019 China Open
Notes: A well touted player who has so often flattered to deceive. Supposedly a machine on the practice tables but has definitely been unable to convert that to tournament wins. There were glimmers though last season that he might be knuckling down, particularly with his second in the China Open. Interestingly, exactly the same can be said of his close friend Judd Trump re the massive potential but possibly not the professionalism. However last season he too seemed to turn a corner and it’ll be interesting if the pair can kick-on again.
Green Room Prediction: Will make 3 semi-finals and manage a ranking even win next season.
