Thanawat Thirapongpaiboon is a Thai professional snooker player. He turned professional in 2010 as the Asian nomination following his run to the semi-finals of the 2010 Asian Championship. At the age of 17, he was the youngest player competing on the 2010/2011 main tour.

He is also the youngest snooker player that ever made an official Maximum Break of 147 points in a professional competition, he was at the age of 16 years and 312 days.

2014/2015 
Thirapongpaiboon did not play his first match of the season until the opening round of the UK Championship, where he was thrashed 6–0 by Stuart Bingham. His first win of the year came courtesy of a 4–0 whitewash over Jimmy Robertson to qualify for the Indian Open, where he lost 4–1 to compatriot Dechawat Poomjaeng in the first round. Thirapongpaiboon's limited season ended with a 10–6 loss to Robertson in the second round of World Championship qualifying after he had seen off Kyren Wilson 10–3 in the first.

2015/2016 
Thirapongpaiboon once again played a select few events during the 2015/2016 season and could only win two matches, which came at the Haining Open. He has not played on the main snooker tour since December 2015 and was relegated from it at the end of the season.
