Embassy World Championship
|Stephen Hendry (a)||18||-||17||Jimmy White (a)|
Hendry won his third consecutive world title and his fourth in five years. This achievement was all the more remarkable because he played every match after the first round with a broken elbow.
This was White's fifth consecutive final appearance, his fourth against Hendry, and his sixth overall. In the decider, White was leading 37-24 but missed a black off the spot, and Hendry cleared up. This was White's last appearance in a World Championship final and the closest he ever came to winning the tournament.
7-94 (60); 64-52; 89 (50)-0; 68-21; 93 (50)-24; 76 (76)-0; 1-85 (63); 68 (57)-70;
