Having first taken up snooker at the age of 10, Ratchayothin Yotharuck first graduated to the main tour in 2013, as he was awarded that season’s ACBS nomination after Asian Championship winner Saleh Mohammad declined the place.
During his first season Ratchayothin was to win four matches, two of which came against Graeme Dott and countryman James Wattana on his way to the last 32 of the Indian Open.
He was to finish the campaign ranked 111th, following a 10-5 defeat to Li Hang at the World Championship qualifiers.
His 2014/15 season was to prove shortlived as he won just one of his ten matches played and failing to enter an event after the conclusion of the German Masters qualifiers in December 2014.
As a result, the Thai player was relegated from the tour at the end of the season.
