• World Championship 1931

    Not a vintage year in the history of the championship.  Despite an upsurge in interest in snooker, there were only two entrants for the 1931 professional championship.

    The event was staged in the back room of a Nottingham pub, owned by Tom Dennis.

    The fact that he was playing on his own table didn't help, as Davis ran out a 25-21 winner for his fifth consecutive win.
