Soheil Vahedi (Persian: سهیل واحدی‎, born March 15, 1989 in Tehran) is an Iranian snooker player.[1]

Career[edit]

In 2009 Vahedi entered the World Amateur Under-21 Snooker Championships in his home country in Kish, Iran in which he reached the final, before he lost 9–8 Noppon Saengkham. Seven years following his disappointment in Kish, Vahedi made it to the final of the World Amateur Snooker Championship where he defeated Andrew Pagett 8–1 to win the 2016 IBSF World Snooker Championship, as a result he was offered a two-year card on the professional World Snooker Tour for the 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 seasons.[2][3] In May 2019, Vahedi came through Q-School - Event 1 by winning five matches to earn a two-year card on the World Snooker Tour for the 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 seasons.
