Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. 1990 - Stephen Hendry

Answer: Jimmy White

The 1990 World Snooker Championship took place between 13 and 29 April 1990. Stephen Hendry became the youngest world champion, at the age of 21 years and 106 days old. He defeated Jimmy White 18-12 in the final. Having previously lost to Steven Davis in the 1984 final, White would reach the final in the five consecutive years from 1990-1994, losing all of them.
2. 1991 - John Parrott

Answer: Jimmy White

The 1991 World Snooker Championship was played between 20 April and 6 May 1991. John Parrott claimed his only world championship with an 18-11 victory over Jimmy White in the final. Parrott was able to make amends for the 1989 final where he had lost 18-3 to Steve Davis, at the time the biggest losing margin in the modern era of the championship.
3. 1992 - Stephen Hendry

Answer: Jimmy White

The 1992 World Snooker Championship was played between 18 April and 4 May 1992. Stephen Hendry won his second title with an 18-14 win in the final against Jimmy White. This was White's third consecutive final defeat, and his fourth overall. White, however, did become only the second player to make a maximum 147 break at the Crucible during his first round win over Malta's Tony Drago.
4. 1993 - Stephen Hendry

Answer: Jimmy White

The 1993 World Snooker Championship was played between 17 April and 3 May 1993. Stephen Hendry and Jimmy White contested the third of their four finals, with Hendry recording his biggest winning margin, 18-5. The 1993 tournament saw the debut appearance of 17 year old Ronnie O'Sullivan, who would go on to become a multiple-time winner of the tournament.
5. 1994 - Stephen Hendry

Answer: Jimmy White

The 1994 World Snooker Championship was played between 16 April and 2 May 1994. Jimmy White made his last appearance in the final of the competition. Having previously lost five out of five finals, he came closest in 1994, losing 18-17 in the final. In the final frame, White got the first chance, but missed a black off the spot.

Hendry cleared the table and won his third consecutive title, and fourth in five years. More remarkable still was that Hendry had played all matches except the first round with a broken elbow.
6. 1995 - Stephen Hendry

Answer: Nigel Bond

The 1995 World Snooker Championship was played from 14 to 30 April 1995. Steven Hendry defeated Englishman Nigel Bond 18-9 in the final to claim his fourth consecutive title, a record at the Crucible Theatre since the tournament had been moved there in 1977. The 1995 tournament saw the debut of multiple world champion John Higgins from Scotland.
7. 1996 - Stephen Hendry

Answer: Peter Ebdon

The 1996 World Snooker Championship was played from 20 April to 6 May 1996. Stephen Hendry equalled the modern day record of Steve Davis (England) and Ray Reardon (Wales) by claiming his sixth world championship, and his fifth consecutive title. Hendry defeated England's Peter Ebdon 18-12 in the final.

The 1996 final was the first in Crucible history where the final shot of the championship was not taken by the champion. Ebdon came to the table needing snookers, but missed, leaving Hendry with a simple shot. Ebdon decided to concede the match.
8. 1997 - Ken Doherty

Answer: Stephen Hendry

The 1997 World Snooker Championship was played between 19 April and 5 May 1997. Ireland's Ken Doherty won his only world title with an 18-12 victory over Stephen Hendry in the final. This was Hendry's sixth consecutive appearance in the final, seventh overall, and the first time he was defeated in the tournament since 1991, a spanning 29 matches. Doherty became the first player to win the world championship at junior, amateur and professional level.

The 1997 tournament was also memorable for Ronnie O'Sullivan making a maximum 147 break in only 5 minutes and 8 seconds, the fastest maximum break in history at that time.
9. 1998 - John Higgins

Answer: Ken Doherty

The 1998 World Snooker Championship was played from 18 April to 4 May 1998. Scotland's John Higgins defeated the 1997 champion Ken Doherty 18-12 in the final to win his first world title. In doing so, Higgins became the world number one, ending an eight year run from Stephen Hendry. Six time winner Hendry, on the other hand, was beaten by Jimmy White 10-4 in the first round.

This was the first time since 1986 that Hendry had lost in the last 32, and the first time since 1988 that he had not at least reached the quarter final stage.
