Last week my 147 Academy travelled to the city of Tel Aviv in Israel to hold another snooker training camp for Israeli Champion Shachar Ruberg.
Each camp this young Israeli impresses me and each season he has improved more and more and I now believe he is regarded as one of the top junior snooker players in the world.
Last season Shachar reached his first Q-Final in the 2014 EBSA European championship and along the way he beat Irelands Rodney Goggins with back to back century breaks. He also qualified for the 2014 Professional World 6 reds in Thailand when he beat professional players Robert Milkins and former World Champion Graham Dott before losing to Ricky Walden in reaching the last 16.
Shachar has really improved his safety game. His Break Building skills are among the very best in my academy and his three main goals for 2015 will be the EBSA Under 21 Championships in Malta, EBSA Men's Championship in the Czech Republic and the World Snooker Q School in England.
Shachar made numerous high quality breaks and it was a pleasure training him again as his commitment was superb throughout the camp. A few of the best clearances he made during the camp were a 140 on the Morris Break, 136 on the Doherty Break, 138 on the Hamilton Break, 128 on the Carter Break, 142 on the Selby Break.
