The World Snooker Championships are approaching the grand finale with the semi-finals in full flow as we approach the last weekend.


A number of superstars have been eliminated from the tournament and only four remain in the hunt for glory, with the prestigious crown on offer at the Crucible.

The eventual winner will revel in the honour of holding the World Snooker Championship title in 2022, but they will walk away with a hefty prize money cheque, taken from a pot that contains £2 million to be shared.

Reigning champion Mark Selby – who toppled Shaun Murphy 18-15 in last year's final – walked away with a cool half a million last year but was knocked out of the tournament in the second round in 2022.

Ronnie O'Sullivan, Judd Trump and an in-form Mark Williams are among the final four in contention this year and will hope to go all the way in Sheffield.
