Figueiredo played in only one tournament during the 2013/14 season: the World Championship. He beat Adam Duffy and Gerard Greene to reach the last 64 before losing to Martin Gould.


In 2010, Brazil's only professional player qualified for the final stages of the World Open in Glasgow. He beat Liu Chuang and Dave Gilbert to qualify, but his match live on BBC didn't last log as he lost 3-0 to Mark Williams.


Arguably the best snooker player ever to emerge from Brazil, Figueiredo had never played on a full size table before 2009, as most tables in Brazil are only ten feet long.


He was first awarded a wild card to the main tour after reaching the final of the 2009 IBSF World Championship, losing 10-8 to Alfie Burden in the final in India.
