Snooker’s Judgement Day

Following Snooker's recent judgment days, the fate of the 16 world championship qualifiers has been determined, solidifying the line-up for the prestigious event at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield. Among those securing their places are former World Champion Stuart Bingham and a former UK Championship winner, Stephen Maguire. 

One of the most notable upsets of the qualifiers was orchestrated by the Welsh Warrior, Jamie Jones, who clinched victory in a last-frame shootout against none other than the 2010 World Champion, Neil Robertson. This marks the first time in two decades that Robertson will not be gracing the Crucible stage, adding a significant twist to this year's championship draw.
