Career

A professional since 1992, Hull came to prominence during the 2001/2002 season, as he reached the last 16 of the 2001 UK Championship, and later qualified for the 2002 World Championship, knocking out Steve Davis in the final qualifying round; in the first round proper, he lost 6–10 to Graeme Dott. These results allowed Hull to get into the world top 32 at the end of the next season.[citation needed]

The 2014/2015 season began well for Hull. He defeated Xiao Guodong, Graeme Dott and Cao Yupeng to reach the quarter-finals (the third of his professional career and first for eight years) of the 2014 Wuxi Classic where he lost 5–2 to eventual runner-up Joe Perry.Hull won most of his opening round matches in the subsequent tournaments, but failed to progress beyond the last 64 stage until the 2015 China Open where he received a bye to the last 32 after Ronnie O'Sullivan's withdrawal, and defeated Mark King 5–4 to reach the last 16, where he lost 5–1 to Kurt Maflin.

Due to missing most of the previous season, Hull arrived at the season-ending World Championship qualifiers needing a repeat of the previous year's performance to retain his tour card by getting into the top 64 of the world rankings. He did exactly that, as he beat Martin McCrudden, Ben Woollaston and Igor Figueiredo to qualify for the Crucible for the second year in a row.He was defeated 10–3 by Shaun Murphy in the first round, but was ranked 61st in the world afterwards.

Hull did not participate in many tournaments at the start of the 2015/2016 season. His first win came at the UK Championship, where he defeated Zhang Anda 6–4 in the first round, followed by a 6–3 victory over world number eight Barry Hawkins.He was defeated in the third round 6–2 by Luca Brecel, his efforts earning him £9,000.At the Shoot-Out, the tournament in which every match is decided by a single 10-minute frame, Hull won his first professional title by beating Brecel in the final. The winner's prize of £32,000 is the highest pay day of his career.
