He was beaten in the last 16 5–2 by Ali Carter. He followed this up by also qualifying for the Bahrain and UK Championships, though he was forced to pull out early in his last-32 match against Joe Perry in the latter, due to a stomach upset.He exceeded his 2007/2008 ranking points total after only five of the eight events of the 2008/2009 season.
