Congratulations to James Wattana, the former world no.3 from Thailand, who has won the Asian Championship and will thus be returning to the professional circuit as from next season.
Wattana is now 39 and had pretty much retired after being relegated last year.
Good luck to him as he obviously still enjoys competing, although he will find it hard coming into the qualifiers from the very first round.
He was a very good player in his day and his influence in popularising snooker in Thailand and Asia in general can't be underestimated.
He'll be back in action for the qualifying rounds of the Shanghai Masters, which start on August 3.
