Embassy World Championship from the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield. The first man through to the semi-finals should be defending champion Stephen Hendry. But he came to Sheffield after a disappointing season.
Jimmy White (four times runner-up, including for the last three years) has had a much better season, winning the Grand Prix and UK titles, and was expected to claim the second semi-final place this afternoon. David Vine and Dougie Donnelly present the best of the action, plus another chance to enter Shot of the Championship.
