Tournament Overview

An interesting field came together for this year’s Senior World Championship, with former world champions Stephen Hendry, John Parrott and Ken Doherty joined by cuemen who performed to a decent standard on the main tour.

One of them is Michael Holt. It was only a few years ago that The Hitman clinched the Shoot Out crown and although Holt possesses the talent to have won more than just that ranking event title, the Nottingham Potter has always been a useful performer.

The 43-year-old hasn’t had a great season on tour but he could still have a lot to offer in that area and Holt has been good enough to beat Anthony Hamilton, Jamie Jones and Kyren Wilson, to name a few. some. there are seasons.

This level of performance should be far too good for players like David Lilley, Hendry and Doherty in the top half of the Crucible draw. At 7-2, the Hitman looks excellent value to take out their senior rivals.

Ronnie O’Sullivan won a record seventh Crucible crown on Monday night and is just 4-1 to better than Stephen Hendry and claim his eighth world championship title next year.

The Rocket started the World Championship with an 11-2 shot to triumph in Sheffield and their fans rarely had too much to worry about in the final as they beat Judd Trump 18-13.

O’Sullivan is now 7-2 favorite with Hills to be named BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2022. Six-time world champion Steve Davis is the only other snooker player to receive the award in 1988.
