So we've made it to the final after a fortnight of fascinating snooker from the 2019 World Snooker Championship. It's been a vintage year featuring the most century breaks ever, the first whitewash in decades and, of course, one of the biggest shock results in the history of sport! And with this guide you can find out how to get a World Championship snooker live stream from absolutely anywhere in the world you are.
It all got started when world number one and snooker legend Ronnie O'Sullivan suffered a surprise defeat at the hands of 23-year-old amateur James Cahill in the first round. Astonishing stuff – Ronnie was the pre-tournament favourite for this year's crown.
But now we've reached the final – John Higgins vs Judd Trump. If that sounds familiar, then you may be remembering the 2011 World Snooker Championship final when Higgins won the same matchup. That was the last of the Wizard of Wishaw's four world titles to date, and this is is third final in a row. Judd Trump on the other hand, is still seeking his first crown. His potting throughout the tournament has been extraordinary…can the 29-year-old left-hander win the big one at the Crucible?
