Jeff Cundy (born 1 March 1969) is an English amateur snooker player, who spent a number of seasons as a professional between 1991 and 2007.

1991 to 1997

Born in 1969, Cundy turned professional in 1991, playing and losing his first match against Tim Norris 2–5 in the Dubai Classic of that year. He recorded his first victory in his next match, beating Philip Minchin 5–2 en-route to the third qualifying round of the Grand Prix, where he was eliminated 4–5 by Gary Lees.

Cundy's furthest progression in an event in his début season was in the 1991 UK Championship, where he reached the last 64, beating Jason Curtis 6–2, Peter Bardsley 6–2, Darren Guest 6–1, the young Anthony Hamilton 6–3, Graham Cripsey 6–5, Gary Natale 6–4 and Jim Wych 6–2, before losing 2–9 to Mark Bennett. This run earned him £750, and he finished the season ranked 148th.

Cundy entered thirteen tournaments during his second season as a professional; again, his furthest run was to the last 64, this time in Event Three of the 1993 Strachan Challenge, where he lost 1–5 to future World Championship finalist Nigel Bond.

His best showing in a ranking event came at the 1993 British Open, where he lost 4–5 to Brian Morgan in the last 96. Having earned £1,025 during the season, Cundy finished it ranked six places higher than the last, at 142nd in the world.

The following season began with another qualifying loss in the Dubai Classic, this year 4–6 to Paul Wykes. Cundy had better luck in the 1993 UK Championship, defeating Jonathan Saunders 5–1 and Joe Grech 5–3 before losing 3–5 to Karl Broughton in the last 128.

More mild success followed in the Thailand Open, where Cundy reached the last 96, losing 1–5 to Dave Finbow, and the 1994 World Championship, where he lost 4–10 to emerging star Ronnie O'Sullivan, also in the last 96.

Cundy began the 1994/95 season with a ranking of 138th, and reached the last 32 of the 1995 Welsh Open, defeating Adrian Gunnell 5–0, Jason Greaves 5–2, Mark Davis 5–1,Roger Garrett 5–0, Nick Terry 5–4 and former world number two Tony Knowles 5–1 before eventually losing 3–5 to Antony Bolsover.

He followed this performance with a run to the last 64 of the International Open, where he was defeated 1–5 by Mike Hallett.

£5,125 in prize money earned during this season elevated Cundy's ranking to 114th for the 1995/96 season.

1995/1996 brought two highlights for Cundy, with runs to the last 64 of both the 1995 Grand Prix and the 1996 European Open; he lost 3–5 to Joe Swail in the former, and was whitewashed 0–5 by Ian Brumby in the latter.

Having retained his professional status as the world number 103, Cundy was unable to replicate his good form of the last few seasons in 1996/1997, earning only £490 from reaching the last 96 of the 1997 Welsh Open, where he lost 3–5 to Euan Henderson. He slipped back to 132nd in the rankings, and lost his professional status.
