During the 2010/11 and 2011/12 season he played in various PTC events. He also played in the 2011 Q-School narrowly failing to earn his spot on the professional circuit. However, the experience he gained, wasn’t lost. Chen entered the 2012 Q-School and, right away, won the 5 matches he needed to get his pro card for two seasons.
He he played in the Main tour in 2012/13 and in 2013/14 but lost his professional status because of insufficient results. He also played in a few events as an amateur during the 2014/15 and 2015/16 seasons.
He entered the Q-School in 2016, and qualified immediately through event 1. He will be on the Main tour again in 2016/17 and 2017/18.
