Live coverage as the world championship final reaches its climax, with a possible 11 frames to be played at Sheffield's Crucible theatre tonight.
Last year history was made as Mark Williams became the first left-hander to win snooker's biggest prize in the first ever all-Welsh final. Williams had been adrift 12-6 and then 13-7 against compatriot Matthew Stevens , but then put together a run of seven frames out of eight to level the match at 14-14. The tension continued before
Williams eventually prevailed with an 18-16 victory.
