Career Summary

Following a couple of tournament wins in 2001 as a 20-year-old, it was to be another six years before he gained a spot in the main tour by winning the 2007 Asian Championship with a 7-0 win against Indian veteran Yasin Merchant in the final.

Although his first season as a professional was to prove unspectacular, he was able to perform well enough to retain his spot for another year. His best runs came in the Shanghai Masters and importantly the World Championship qualifiers as he made the last 64 in both, before losing heavily in both matches to Michael Judge and Alan McManus respectively.


Unfortunately for Supoj, 2008/9 was been a poor season as he has lost his opening round match in five of the eight ranking tournaments staged.

This meant that despite a good run in the Grand Prix where he defeated Chris McBreen and Liu Song in his first two matches before losing out to Rory McLeod, he was to finish down in 82nd place in the rankings and find himself relegated from the main tour as a result.
