World Championship Snooker Betting

The World Championship is snooker’s most prestigious tournament 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 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 Ronnie 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 Stuart Bingham earlier this year 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.
