Talking Best Young Players (25 years and below) - 02-22-2016, 09:04 PM

So the pipeline of young pool talent is not looking great. IMHO, there are probably only a few young players (25 years old and below) who can hang with world's top tier. But again, by and large, we see that the pool top tier comprises mostly those in late 20s, 30s and early 40s. (Disclaimer -Of cos there may be some other good players out of Philippines and hot spots like Romania , Russia that I may have never heard of. )

But I would say in terms of achievements in majors, the 2 best young players in top tier right now are Johann Chua and Little Ko. Both have done quite well and finished in later stages of major tourneys W9B/W10B, All Japan and Johann Chua is only one 25 and under to have won a major (All Japan)

Johann Chua (24)
Ko Ping Chung(21)


Ruslan Chinahov (24)
Jeff Ignacio (22)
Aloysius Yap (20)
Skyler Woodward (22)
Alex Kazakis (25)
Wang Can (23)
Mario He (22)
Wojciech Szewczyk (22)
Mateusz Sniegocki (22)


Also throw in these ex-World Junior Champions who have so far not made much of an impact -
Fransceso Sanchez Ruiz
Liu Cheng Chieh

There is also this kid Joshua Filler (18) who made quite an impression at 14.1 tourney last year. Then there is this young Filipino phenom, probably 17 years old, Anton Raga who has been giving weight to number of Pinoy veterans.

I was always curious about Anton Raga. Is he really that good? I was very amazed when I heard that he was giving Efren weight (and I think it was quite a big spot). I seen him play, and his game really did not impress me all that much.

Among these Aloysius Yap (20) has impressed me most. His best has still to come.

There is one 15-16 year old kid who was in DCC 9 ball and finished top 15. Might be one to watch as well.

EDIT: Fedor Gorst is the name.
