Tony Drago is on the verge of securing a return to the main tour after reaching the final of the European play-offs in Belgium.
Drago, Malta's best known sportsman, was relegated from the professional circuit last year.
He needs to beat Yvan Van Velthoven or Roy Stolk in the final to book his return.
There have been few players as entertaining as this one time world no.10 and it would be good to have him back on the circuit.
Like James Wattana's return through his Asian Championship victory, it proves these former leading lights still love playing and can still play to a high enough standard to earn their places on the pro tour.
