How closely were you following the action in Sheffield this year?
The World Snooker Championship results are in and the magnificent Mark Selby was the last man standing at the Crucible Theatre on Monday.
It was a fantastic fourth world crown for the player known as the Jester from Leicester, adding to his previous glories in 2014, 2016, and 2017.
At just 37, it could be argued that Selby is in the prime of his snooker career and it will be interesting to see if he can go on and lift the trophy again in the future.
The new world number two’s consistency in Sheffield is something to be applauded, triumphing on the greatest stage of them all in four out of the last eight World Snooker Championship outings.
This tournament was notable not only in the entertaining snooker that was dished out over the course of the 17 days – 27 if you include the qualifiers at the English Institute of Sport – but also because it was the first sporting event in the UK to welcome crowds back into an indoor arena.
A capacity of 25% was permitted at the beginning more than a fortnight ago, but staggered increases in the numbers allowed meant that the final on Sunday and Monday was contested in front of a full house.
There will continue to be some critics who, perhaps rightly, challenge the decision to allow fans in at this time, but there is no doubting the fact that the manic cheering and boisterous calls of support that provided an atmospheric backdrop to the title-deciding showdown was a sight that had been sorely missed elsewhere on the calendar this campaign.
It arguably wasn’t the most memorable World Snooker Championship in terms of the action on the table, with four clashes lasting the distance and a lot of other results providing one-sided scorelines.
Yet, there were still plenty of stories to savour, not least off the baize with World Snooker Tour and Matchroom Sport chairman Barry Hearn relinquishing his role and taking a large step towards his own retirement.
There were 31 matches at the Crucible and now that the dust has settled it’s time to find out if you can remember all of the 2021 World Snooker Championship results.
The question is, how many can you get right?
