The first championship was held in 1927, and the legendary Joe Davis helped to organise the event. Matches were held at various venues, and the final took place at Camkin's Hall, Birmingham. Joe Davis won the event, beating Tom Dennis 20-11. His prize money was £6.10s. The highest break of the tournament was 60 by Albert Cope.

In subsequent years, finals were held at various venues. Joe Davis won every year until 1940, when he just beat his younger brother Fred 37-36. No tournaments were organised during the remaining war years, and it only resumed in 1946 when Joe Davis won again for the 15th time, a record that still stands.

Michaela Tabb has created snooker history by becoming the first woman to referee at the world championships.

The Dunfermline official took charge as 11th seed Mark King unexepectedly lost to Scotland's Drew Henry 10-5 at the Crucible in Sheffield.

Tabb said: "I was nervous before I walked out. When the MC was introducing me, his words went right over my head.

"Towards the end of the first frame, I settled down and it just felt like any other match.

"It was a brilliant experience."

The 35-year-old mother-of-one moved from pool to snooker two years ago and is married to Scottish international Ross McInnes.

"Ross was playing in a pool tournament at the weekend and got as far as Carlisle to watch the first session but turned round because he needed to get back to play," Tabb added.
