      Was going to talk about Amine Amiri, glad u did already. He is the first Moroccan player on the pro tour, native of Casablanca, he was first reconized in the uk 8 ball scene(most popular variant of billard here). he is nicknamed 'Messi' locally, mainly for two reasons : his skills and execution on the table and his resemblance to the football player. He plays in the Sheffield academy Casablanca.

        thanks for the additional information
        do you know how old he is?
        looks young


        I watched his progress through the AfricaGames



        a few pots now to settle down - I don't want to say anything as when I do I tend to jinx the player
