The Scotsman has been retired from the professional circuit for seven years but is still considered the most successful snooker player of all time.
Rachapol, better known as Tong Sid Choi, is a national hero, achieving global fame when he turned pro in the ’80s and rising to World No 3 in the 1994-95 season.
He never won a world title but reached the semi-finals in 1993 and 1997 and became the first Asian to score three 147 maximum breaks in competition.
Hendry and Rachapol have played each other 22 times, with Hendry winning 17.
