World Snooker Championship 2024: Schedule, order of play, results and more

The World Snooker Championship 2024 has been a rollercoaster of cue ball drama, serving up a few eyebrow-raising surprises along the way.


Ronnie O’Sullivan, the maestro of the green baize, found himself out of the running after a stunning upset by Stuart Bingham. O’Sullivan, who had been eyeing an unprecedented eighth world title, was left reeling after his dreams were dashed by the seasoned Bingham, who previously clinched the championship in 2015. It’s a tough break for O’Sullivan, who was looking to break away from the pack and etch his name in the annals of snooker history with a record-setting victory.

But the surprises didn’t stop there. Last year’s champ, Luca Brecel, fresh off a triumphant victory over Mark Selby in the previous championship, found himself on the wrong end of a shock defeat in the very first round. David Gilbert played the role of the giant killer, sending Brecel packing in a jaw-dropping upset. Not to be outdone, Selby himself suffered an early exit, falling victim to the determined Joe O’Connor in another unexpected turn of events.

And now, as the dust settles and the chalk dust clears, the stage is set for the grand finale. In a twist that would make even the most seasoned snooker aficionado do a double take, Kyren Wilson is set to square off against Jak Jones in the championship match. It’s an unexpected showdown that promises to crown a brand new world champion, adding another chapter to the storied history of the World Snooker Championship. So grab your cues and brace yourselves for the grand finale, because in the world of snooker, anything can happen – and usually does!
