Alan McManus

Alan McManus is a professional snooker player from Sweden who won the Masters Championship in 1994 and the Thailand Open in 1996. The professional snooker player set his highest tournament breaking record of 143 during the 1994 World Championship. From 1990 through 2006, he was ranked in the Top 16 for 14 straight seasons in snooker.

How did Alan McManus amass his fortune?

Alan McManus’ net worth comes from his career as a professional snooker player. Since 1990, he has earned $3.28 million in prize money from his professional snooker career. The Glasglow native earned £86,900 as the 1994 Masters Champion, just four years after turning professional in snooker. He also won £1,614,482 at the Thailand Masters in 2001. Despite losing to Ding Junhui 5-10 in the first round of the 2013 World Snooker Championship, he won £12,000.

After 14 seasons in the top 16 from 1990 to 2006, the Scottish player had a disappointing 2005/2006 season and slid out of the top 16.

Stephen Hendry, John Higgins, Matthew Stevens, Paul Hunter, Ken Doherty, Ronnie O’Sullivan, and Mark Williams were among his peers who failed to reach success.
He had his greatest rating of 6th in 1993/94 and 1996/97, but following a disappointing 2005/6 season, he slid out of the Top 16. He has reached 21 professional semi-finals in his professional career, winning only four of them.

Similarly, he has reached the World Championship semi-finals three times but has never advanced to the finals. For example, he reached the finals of the 2002 LG Cup at Preston Guild Hall, but was defeated by Chris Small, a fellow countryman, 5-9. He also advanced to the semi-finals of the 2006 Snooker Grand Prix, where he was defeated by Neil Robertson.

Despite consistently good results in other competitions, he did not reach the tournament’s quarter-finals until 2005.
From 2007 to 2013, he failed to qualify for either UK or World Championship after losing a World Champion Qualifier. In the 2012/2013 season, he made a comeback and qualified for the final stages of the Australian Goldfields Open.

In the 2014/2015 season, the Scot finished in the Top 16 and qualified for the 2016 World Championship. He defeated 2014 World Snooker Champion John Higgins 10-7 in the first round, but lost to Mark Selby in the second round, when the three-time World Snooker Champion Selby claimed the match 13–5. Alan qualified for the World Open in 2016/2017 and advanced to the third round. During the 2017/2018 season, the Scottish professional had a head start and climbed to #32 in the world rankings. On the 2017 UK Championship, he defeated Robin Hull 6-3 but fell to Jimmy Robertson 6-5 in the third round.
His current rating is 47 as of September 2020.

Alan’s Private Life; Did He Have a Wife?

Alan’s love life has remained a mystery due to his low-key personal life. He won the 1994 Dubai Classic and the 1996 Thailand Open. Despite the fact that he had an ex-wife, who was his childhood sweetheart, according to several websites.

Alan had received a tweet from a Twitter user who inquired about his marital life. However, the reclusive snooker legend has yet to respond. In 2009, another unidentified source alleged that his tumultuous marriage contributed to his collapse in snooker.

However, the 1992 global semi-finalist has never confirmed or commented on his ex-wife.
The Scottish professional snooker player’s career is well-known, but he has kept his personal life private. In all of his interviews, he has never revealed his probable girlfriend and has kept focused on his goal of becoming a commentator following his Snooker career.

Alan’s Personal Life; He Has a Cool Brother

Raymond McManus, a well-known private snooker player, has revealed that he has a sibling. On April 17, 2018, Alan tweeted a photo of his brother. Alan’s metalhead sibling wore a T-shirt from the American thrash metal band Slayer in the photo.

Raymond, according to Alan, is a cool brother and a huge metalhead. The snooker player also tweeted a video showing Raymond tuning Dougie’s song on his guitar, as well as a link to his brother’s Facebook page.
