In 2008, Ronnie O'Sullivan captured his third World Championship trophy, with victory over Ali Carter. He begins the defence of the title against fellow Essex cueman Stuart Bingham. Also in action is the intriguing clash of two former champions, Stephen Hendry, the seven times winner, and Mark Williams, who is looking to regain his place among the elite top 16.
