Tournament summary

  • Davis won by the biggest margin ever at a World Snooker Championship when he beat John Parrott 18–3 in the final to win his sixth title to equal Ray Reardon's total since the competition was re-launched in 1969.[1] The match ended with a session to spare.[2]
  • Eddie Charlton defeated Cliff Thorburn 10–9 in the first round. The match ended at 2.40 a.m, and was the second latest finish at the Crucible.[2] With this Charlton became at the age of 59 years and 169 days the second-oldest player to win a match at the World Championship, after Fred Davis in 1979.[3]
