His specialty is the Italian Five-pin billiards where he holds a number of notable firsts. He is, in fact, the only person to have, at the same time, the titles of World Champion, European Champion and Italian Pro Champion.

The Italian Five-pin billiards is a specialty that is played on an International Table (the same used for the carom billiards or carambole billiards).
