Itaro Santos (born 28 July 1985) is a German-Brazilian professional snooker player. Itaro is based at the Legends Snooker Academy in Leytonstone, England, United Kingdom.

Career[edit]

Since 2004 Santos has also competed for Germany, as his native Brazil was not then a member of the IBSF. He is a two-time German Amateur Championship and together with Lasse Münstermann and Sascha Lippe competed as part of Team Germany at the European Team Snooker Championship of 2007. Through a wildcard Santos was also competed in the finals of the World Series of Snooker 2008/09. However he only managed to finish third in his group and failed to qualify for the next round.

Santos won the 2015 Pan American Championship to earn a two-year card for the snooker tour beginning with the 2015/2016 season.[3] He only played four matches in the 2015/2016 season, losing all of them.[4] Santos also lost all 12 of his matches in the 2016/2017 season, though he was 3–1 ahead of world number six Shaun Murphy at the UK Championship, but was beaten 6–3. He has now dropped off the tour.[5][6]
