Samir Pilica

Samir Pilica was an octochamp and semi-finalist in Series 70, and a participant in Championship of Champions XIV.

Born in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Pilica was one of, if not the first ever octochamp to not have English as his first language.

He started his run with a century over fellow finalist Sean Fletcher, and went on to achieve an octotal of 801 points and become number 2 seed for the finals. After resoundingly defeating Priscilla Munday in the quarter-finals, he lost to number 3 seed Andy Naylor in a close semi-final battle.

Pilica returned in 2016 for Championship of Champions XIV but lost 127-88 in the first round to Series 69 champion Callum Todd.
