Tournament summary

  • Debutants at the Crucible this year were Peter Ebdon,[2] Mark Johnston-Allen,[3] Mick Price,[4] Chris Small,[5] Stephen Murphy,[6] Nigel Bond[7] and James Wattana.[8] Ebdon, Price, Small and Wattana reached the second round.[9]
  • Jimmy White became only the second player ever to compile a maximum break at the Crucible, during his 10–4 first round win over Tony Drago, nine years after Cliff Thorburn's maximum in 1983.[10] The highest break of the qualifying stage was 141 made by Joe Johnson.[9]
  • Hendry secured a record in the semi-final, when he beat Terry Griffiths 16–4. This was the biggest semi-final victory at the World Championship, until it was superseded in 2004 by Ronnie O'Sullivan, who defeated Hendry 17–4.[11]
  • Steve Davis' 4–10 defeat to qualifier Peter Ebdon was his first defeat in the opening round since 1982. It also ended his nine-year streak of reaching at least the semi-finals of the tournament.[12]
  • The 10–0 win by defending champion John Parrott over Eddie Charlton is the only whitewash in the history of the Crucible.[1][13]
  • Eight of the sixteen seeded players exited the tournament in the first round. This did not happen again until 2012.[14]
