Ronnie O’Sullivan, Mark Selby, Judd Trump, Mark Williams, Shaun Murphy, Kyren Wilson, Zhao Xintong, and reigning champion David Gilbert were included in the tournament. For the 46th consecutive year, the biggest snooker tournament is held in the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield, England. This year, World Snooker Championships are being held at the famous Crucible Theatre, Sheffield, for the 46th consecutive year, as well as being the 54th year the tournament has been held under its single-elimination format.

Crucible finalists Judd Trump are set to face Jamie Clarke, Planets champion Ronnie OSullivan and Yisong Peng in Pool 2 on Tuesday, 19 July. Ronnie O’Sullivan is the favourite to win the final of the World Snooker Championship. However, Judd Trump has moved into the Evens following a thrilling victory over Mark Williams, suggesting the bookies think it may be a tight contest. Ronnie O’Sullivan, Mark Williams and Judd Trump all remain at The World Snooker Championship, but Thunder From Down Unders Neil Robertson lost an exciting match against Jack Lisowski in the qualification round. After Trump won the first frame, Ronnie O’Sullivan won the second, making 120, his 200th world snooker championship century and his 13th of the tournament, matching his previous personal best in Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre. First up was Judd Trump, who survived the crucible classic against Williams, winning 17-16 after the game went to the decisive frame.

That #3 seed Neil Robertson has just one Snooker World Cup title to his name is a puzzle; the same could be said of #4 seed Judd Trump, whose triumph at the Turkish Masters in March was his first title of the ranking season. Reigning champion Mark Selby might be top of the World Snooker Championships for 2022, but the man to beat is No.3 seed Neil Robertson, who has won The Masters, The Players Championship and The Circuit this year. Neil Robertson came close to winning another major title this year in March Welsh Open, although Judd Trump had an edge, winning the event by 5-3. Lisowski became only the eighth player, after Cliff Thorburn, Jimmy White, Hendry, Ronnie O’Sullivan, and the three-time champion Williams, Carter, and John Higgins, to score the highest score at the last stage of the world championship.

In 1998, Ronnie O’Sullivan was stripped of his title at the Irish Masters, along with his PS 61,000 prize purse, following his failure of a drugs test, while his 2005 defence of his world championship was derailed by controversial circumstances, as he gave up 11 of his final 14 frames in defeat by Peter Ebdon. he latter had evidently infuriated OSullivan by his sluggish performance in the quarter-final.
