Kyren Wilson – Robbie Williams Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 21:30

Stephen Hendry is the most successful player in the modern era, having won the championship 7 times.[3] The previous year's championship was won by England's Stuart Bingham, who won the event defeating Shaun Murphy in the final 1815.

Ding Junhui and Alan McManus set a new record in their semi-final for the most century breaks achieved in a professional match, scoring ten. Ding also setting a new record for the most centuries by one player in a single world championship match with seven. In the other semi-final, Mark Selby and Marco Fu set a new record for the longest frame of snooker ever played at the Crucible, at 76 minutes 11 seconds. Bingham fell to the Crucible curse, becoming the 17th first-time champion unable to defend his title at the venue. The defending champion Stuart Bingham lost 910 against Ali Carter in the first round. During the tournament, six-time champion Steve Davis played the last professional match of his 38-year career against Fergal O'Brien in the qualifiers; he announced his retirement later during the first round of the event. In defeating McManus, Ding became the first Asian player ever to reach a World Championship final.

There were 86 century breaks made by 24 players in the televised stage of the World Championship, equalling the record set the year before.[87][56] For every century break made during the 17-day championship in Sheffield, the title sponsor, Betfred, donated 200 to the Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.

Eleven former world champions competed in the tournament.

Trailing Barry Hawkins 912, Ronnie O'Sullivan won three consecutive frames to take the match to a deciding frame. Hawkins prevailed in the decider to win the match 1312, the first time in 14 years that Hawkins had beaten O'Sullivan in a competitive match.

Alan McManus came from 911 behind against John Higgins to win 1311 and reach his first Crucible semi-final since 1993.[57][58] At the age of 45, he became the oldest Crucible semi-finalist since Ray Reardon, who was 52 when he reached that stage in 1985.[58]Marco Fu led Barry Hawkins by 91 before Hawkins won five straight frames to within one at 10-9.

Playing the defending champion Stuart Bingham, Ali Carter led 51 and 85 before Bingham won four consecutive frames to lead 98. Carter tied the match with a century break in the 18th frame, before winning the deciding frame to win 109.


Luca beat Shaun Murphy 10-5, while taking the scalps of Marco Fu, Li Hang and Ronnie OSullivan. The next year, Mark Selby won his seventh Chinese ranking title by defeating John Higgins 10-9. When it became a ranker in 2017, Luca Brecel became the first Belgian to win a ranking event. I call it a newbie because the tournament itself is only three-years-old, two years as a full ranking event.

The afternoon sessions of the final were watched by audiences of 45 million in China, the country's largest audience for a sporting event that year. The total global audiences for the tournament exceeded 300 million, with 210 million viewers in China alone. After beating Robert Milkins 106, Sam Baird 1311, Kyren Wilson 138, and Fu 1715, Selby defeated Ding 1814 in the final to claim his second world title. A record-equalling 86 century breaks were made at the event, the same number as the previous year, with Kyren Wilson making the tournament's highest break of 143.

Assuming the top seeds win their preliminary rounds, about five ties are exactly the same in the China Championship as they were in the International Championship. Odd. Because of similar seedings, the top seeds are placed in the same draw as before. The odd thing about this draw is that the seeds are remarkably similar to the previous event. These matches are Kyren Wilson/Robbie Williams, Anthony McGill/Michael Holt, Scott Donaldson/Martin Gould, Shaun Murphy/Yuan Sijun and potentially Ding Junhui/Zhao Xintong. We can see Joe Perry, Stephen Maguire, Jack Lisowski, Kyren Wilson and Judd Trump within the same quarter in the China Championship, which is exactly like the draw in the International Championship.


The world championship sees 32 professional players compete in one-on-one snooker matches in a single elimination format, each played over several frames.
