World Snooker Championships begins tomorrow!

My favorite event all year gets underway tomorrow morning! For the uninitiated, it is the final event of the snooker season and a huge one at that. It’s a seventeen day tournament with the top 16 in the world seeded playing 16 qualifiers that have played in the previous weeks to secure a spot.
