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.


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]
