Scotland Stephen Hendry (a) 18-5 England Jimmy White (a) Head to head
The third time since the championship moved to the Crucible, and to date the last, that the title was settled in the afternoon with a session to spare. The previous two were in 1983 and 1989.

Ganley refereed his last of four World Snooker Championship finals since 1983, including 1990 when Stephen Hendry became the youngest World Champion. Another career highlights were the 1983 UK Championship final between Alex Higgins and Steve Davis and Ronnie O'Sullivan's fastest 147 against Mick Price in the first round of 1997 World Championship.
