The World Championship, now in its 46th year, is the jewel in snooker's crown. This year's tournament delivered an 11th maximum break and plenty of shocks, including China's Yan Bingtao knocking out reigning champion Mark Selby. 

The Chinese Tiger didn't make it much further, though, and left the semi-finals to Judd Trump and  'The Class of 92' – Ronnie O'Sullivan, John Higgins and Mark J. Williams. Trump's semi-final with Williams was one of the best ever at the Crucible, leading to an incredible winner-takes-all final frame with tension as thick as the marble in a church. Meanwhile O'Sullivan blew away matchplay grinder John Higgins.

So, it's The Rocket vs The Ace In The Pack in a four-session, best-of-35 World Snooker final. Trump, a cue-sports prodigy who made a 147 maximum break aged 14, will be looking to add to his 2019 world title, while experienced campaigner O'Sullivan is targeting a record-equalling seventh world title.

The third session starts at 1pm BST on Monday. The crucial final session gets underway at 7pm, 2nd May.  UK snooker fans can watch all four sessions free on BBC iPlayer. Read on to find out how to watch a free 2022 Masters live stream from where you are.
