Career

Georgiou qualified for the main tour by winning the 2007 IBSF World Under-21 Snooker Championship in India. However it was a season to forget as he failed to win a single match and lost his tour place as a result.

Georgiou made his debut in the Australian Goldfields Open by beating Ross Muir 5–0, Aditya Mehta 5–4 and David Gilbert 5–4, but lost 5–2 to John Higgins in the first round. Before the UK Championship he had been practicing with seven-time world champion Stephen Hendry and knocked out David Morris 6–5 in the opening round.[10] He was defeated 6–2 by Mark Allen in the second round. Gergiou reached the third round of the Welsh Open by overcoming Jamie Jones 4–0 and Peter Ebdon 4–2, but lost 4–1 to Higgins for the second year in a row. He needed to qualify for the World Championship to remain on tour, but lost his opening game 10–6 to Noppon Saengkham meaning he needed to come through Q School to earn his place back.

In 2016, Georgiou announced that he would be representing Cyprus at the 2016/17 Q School tournaments. Georgiou was successful in the second event in regaining his tour place defeating Craig Steadman 4–1 in the final round and as a result would qualify for the tour as a Cypriot player. He got to the third round of the Paul Hunter Classic courtesy of beating Fraser Patrick 4–1 and David Gilbert 4–2 and lost 4–1 to Gerard Greene. Georgiou secured 6–2 and 6–4 wins over Matthew Selt and Mike Dunn to set up a third round encounter with Ronnie O'Sullivan at the UK Championship. Georgiou took the opening frame, but would go on to lose 6–1 and described his opponent as not human after the match such was his standard of play. He had a fourth round showing at the Shoot-Out and was eliminated by Andy Hicks.
