World Championship history

The World Championship is snooker's most prestigious tournaments in the calendar and also the leading event to bet on among the sport's punters.

Taking place at Sheffield's world famous Crucible Theatre around April and May every year, the World Championship provides the climax to every snooker season and is the title all players dream of winning throughout their careers.

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

The World Championship, which was first held way back in 1927 when the legendary Joe Davis won the first of his record 15 crowns, has seen a number of repeat winners over the years such as Ray Reardon, Steve Davis, Stephen Hendry and Robbie O'Sullivan who have all helped snooker punters beat the bookies on many occasions.

However, the heavily backed crowd favourite Jimmy White was a beaten finalist on no fewer than six occasions - including five in a row between 1990 and 1994 - much to the bookies relief!

While 'Rocket' Ronnie O'Sullivan's five world titles and three much-celebrated 147 Crucible breaks have brought much cheer to snooker fans in more recent times, the highly unexpected triumph of journeyman pro Stuart Bingham in 2014 was a real fairytale story that ranks closely behind the shock underdog victories that Dennis Taylor, in the 'Black Ball Final of 1985' and Joe Johnson enjoyed over Steve Davis in the 1980s.

Mark Williams rolling back the years to win his third world title in 2018 also brought the house down, especially when deciding to fulfil his promise to strip naked for the post-match interviews!

Crucible maximum breaks

The first 147 at the World Championship was achieved by Canada's 'Grinder' Cliff Thorburn in 1983 while Jimmy White (1992), Stephen Hendry (1995, 2009, 2012), Ronnie O'Sullivan (1997, 2003, 2008), Mark Williams (2005) and Ali Carter (2008) are the others to managed Crucible maximums.

O'Sullivan's effort in 1997 against Mick Price, timed at five minutes 20 seconds, is the fastest ever recorded in the professional game.
