Although fans know and love Sheffield's Crucible as the home of this celebrated contest today, the competition had more
of a nomadic existence around pub games rooms in its early decades. In the years since its inaugural tournament was won by
Joe Davis - who would end up lifting no less than 15 titles - it moved between venues around the UK and in some years was
not even held. However, since making its permanent home in South Yorkshire in the late '70s it's gone from strength to strength.
This was the decade where Ray Reardon would dominate with six victories, before Steve Davies matched his feat in the 1980s.
The 1990s saw Scottish star Stephen Hendry take home the coveted trophy seven times and land as runner-up twice. In more
recent years, the likes of John Higgins, Ronnie O'Sullivan, Graham Dott and Neil Robertson have etched their names on the
coveted trophy. 2013's chapter in this thrilling series of skill and precision promises to be one of the tightest yet. Find
