History of the World Cup

The World Championship is the most prestigious snooker tournament on the calendar and also the premier event among the sport’s gamblers.

The World Championship takes place at the world-famous Crucible Theater in Sheffield around April and May every year, except for 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic forced a postponement until August. It is the climax of every snooker season and is the title all players dream of winning. their career.

It is also the cornerstone of snooker’s Triple Crown, which also includes the UK Championship and the Masters, and any player who wins all three tournaments during their career becomes an undisputed legend of the sport.

The World Championship, first held in 1927 when the legendary Joe Davis won the first of his record fifteen crowns, has seen a number of repeat winners over the years, including Ray Reardon, Steve Davis, Stephen Hendry and Ronnie O’ Sullivan, all of whom have helped snooker gamblers beat the bookmakers on many occasions.

However, heavily backed crowd favorite Jimmy White was a beaten finalist no less than six times – including five in a row between 1990 and 1994 – much to the relief of the bookmakers!

While ‘Rocket’ Ronnie O’Sullivan’s seven world titles and three much-celebrated 147 Crucible breaks have brought much cheer to snooker fans of late, journeyman pro Stuart Bingham’s very unexpected victory in 2014 was a veritable fairytale story that closely echoes the expectations of snooker fans. behind the shock underdog victories that Dennis Taylor, in the ‘Black Ball final of 1985’, and Joe Johnson achieved over Steve Davis in the 1980s.

Mark Williams turning back the years to win his third world title in 2018 also brought things down, especially when he decided to keep his promise to strip naked for the post-match interviews!

There was less drama a year later, as Judd Trump produced one of the most impressive displays in memory of John Higginsfor O’Sullivan took a sixth title in the 2020 summer extension.

Then in 2021, Mark Selby bounced back from a heartbreaking semi-final defeat to O’Sullivan last year. win his fourth world titlealongside Higgins on the all-time list.

O’Sullivan continued wins his seventh World Championship in 2022beating Trump 18-13 in the final, while Luca Brecel defeated maximum man Mark Selby twelve months later.
