Ronnie O'Sullivan will once again take to the World Snooker Championship stage this month, Saturday, April 19 marking the start of a two-week campaign in which he'll look to defend his title.

Sheffield's Crucible Theatre will once again welcome snooker's best and brightest in the hopes of unearthing a deserving champion come the final on May 5.

The snooker masses are currently in a state of slight delirium, as The Guardian's Barry Glendennig reports on Barry Hearn's overhaul of the sport, including its financial restrictions and formatting.

In that report, BBC pundit and former world champions Ken Doherty notes that Hearn's work has left "professional snooker players feeling like they have a full-time job again," just as O'Sullivan gears up to attempt winning his sixth world title.

Follow along with our daily results from Sheffield to ensure you don't miss out on any of the key moments from snooker's most hallowed contest.
