CareerEdit

In 2015, Yassen beat fellow countryman and former professional Mohamed Khairy 6–5 in the final of the African Championship. The win gained him a two-year card on the World Snooker Tour for the 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 seasons.[2][3] He lost all six matches he played during the season and failed to pick up a frame in four of them.[4] It was a similar story the following season as he lost all eight matches he played and he has now dropped off the tour.[5]
