Defending champion Mark Selby poses with the trophy (credit:)

The highlight of the snooker season sees the world's top cueists descend on The Crucible for the World Championship, and you can follow all latest results and session times here.

The annual show-piece features the world's top 16 ranked players alongside a further 16 qualifiers as they battle it out for £1.91 million in prize money from April 15 to May 1.



This year marks the 40th anniversary of the iconic competition held at Sheffield's iconic Crucible Theatre and promises to be a fitting celebration on the green baize.

Reigning champion Mark Selby is bidding to claim snooker's most prestigious prize for the third time, but faces competition from a formidable field of challengers, including five-time World Champion Ronnie O'Sullivan, multiple major winner Judd Trump, 2010 champion Neil Robertson and four-time Crucible king John Higgins.

Other seeded stars eyeing glory include the likes of 2016 beaten finalist Ding Junhui, 2005 winner Shaun Murphy, 2015 champion Stuart Bingham, Barry Hawkins, Marco Fu and Mark Allen.

Debutant qualifiers include Chinese duo Yan Bingtao and Zhou Yuelong, 2015 UK Championship semi-finalist David Grace, Gary Wilson and Thailand's Noppon Saengkham.
