The World Snooker Championship is the premier professional ranking tournament in snooker.


Since the 1973/74 season, it has been included in the list of rating competitions. The championship is currently held at the Crucible Theater in Sheffield, England. This tournament is the most important in terms of prestige, ranking points and prize money, and takes place annually at the end of the season.


The format of the World Cup in the early stages of its development (1920-1960) was unstable and changed almost every time. Basically, snooker players played long, sometimes multi-day matches. The peak of such "marathon" draws came in the 1950s, when the finals were played to at least 50 wins. 1952 was a record year for this indicator - then Horace Lindrum and Clark McConaughey played a match of 143 frames.


Lindrum won that final with a score of 94:49 (for comparison, championship finals are now played up to 18 wins). However, in the 1970s, the WPBSA (snooker's new governing body) was forced to reduce the number of frames to win. This happened for a simple reason: snooker matches began to be broadcast on television, and the broadcast time was limited.


So, since 1980, the maximum possible number of final games has been reduced to 35. By the way, around the same time, thanks to the arrival of new professional players, the tournament bracket expanded: now the matches of the main part of the championship began with the 1/16 finals. The rest of the matches were played according to a well-established system, which for almost 30 years has undergone minimal changes: 1/16 finals - matches up to 10 wins, 1/8 finals - up to 13 wins, 1/4 finals - up to 13 wins and semi-finals - up to 17 victories (up to 16 until 1997). Seeding of playersTraditionally, the first match of each new world championship is opened by the current winner.


Bemorepanda collected some interesting facts.


PREVIEW: 2021 World Snooker Championship - Cluster of Reds Snooker Blog


1. The fastest high of 147 in the history of snooker was made at the 1997 World Cup by Ronnie O'Sullivan. It was unimaginably fast - only five minutes and 20 seconds, Ronini then played against Mick Price.


2. Chinese promoters have built a replica of the Crucible (the arena where the World Cup takes place) in Beijing as a first step in getting the World Cup to be hosted in China.


3. It must be said that the Chinese Crucible is completely identical to the English arena in Sheffield, and may be more than a convincing argument in the future. Sheffield has a contract to host the World Cup until 2017, and World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn said he just wants the tournament to stay in that city.


4. In total, 10 maximums were made during the televised stages of the World Championships. And three each - on account of Stephen Hendry and Ronnie O'Sullivan. Also among those who made 147 at this stage are Cliff Thorburn, Jimmy White, Ali Carter and Mark Williams. Moreover, Hendry made his last maximum in the championship in 2012, after which he retired.


5. Scottish players have won 12 of the last 25 world titles, including Hendry's seven (1990-92-93-94-95-96-99), John Higgins' four (1998-2007-2009-2011) and one in Graham Dott (2006).


________________________________________________________

Accordingly, when seeding for a tournament, he receives the first number, regardless of what place he occupies in the official or preliminary ranking. The second number is usually given to the player ranked first in the official rankings. The distribution of seeding among the remaining 14 snooker players from the Top 16 is also made in accordance with the official ranking. For example, at the 2010 tournament, the first seed was the winner of the 2009 championship (that is, the previous champion) John Higgins (although at that time he was only the 4th number in the rating).


The second was Ronnie O'Sullivan, who occupied the 1st at that time in the rating. The third seed went to Stephen Maguire (ranked 2). It should also be noted that the distribution of "unseeded" (qualified) players to the first round of the final stage (1/16 finals) is made by random draw, and their official rating does not play no role. For example, in the 1/16th of the same tournament in 2010, Higgins, being the first seed, played with the 17th seed, and the 2nd seed (O'Sullivan) played with the 27th number.


Prize money at the World Snooker Championship appeared from the very first year of its holding and amounted to 6 pounds and 10 shillings. By 1946, the prize money had increased to £1,000 for the victory and the final, and although translated into the current exchange rate, this amount increases several times, the money was clearly not enough all this time.


The situation changed for the better in the early 1970s, when snooker tournaments began to be shown on television, and well-known sponsors (mostly advertising cigarettes and alcoholic beverages) became interested in the game. did not increase, but the sponsors themselves changed three times over the next 10 years.


The arrival of the cigarette brand Embassy in 1976 was crucial for the tournament, and it began to actively increase the prize fund. At the first Embassy-sponsored World Championship, the prize money totaled ? 15,300; the champion guaranteed himself £6,000. But already by 1995, the fund was set at 578,250, and in the 2003 championship, a record for prize money, only the winner received ? 270 thousand. The general fund of that superiority has made 1 378 920 pounds.

6. Derbyshire player Joe Davis became the first world champion in 1927 and won 15 titles in a row, ie. all the World Cups in which he participated. He won his last world title in 1946 and ended his career undefeated.


7. Only two players participated in the 1931 World Cup. Tom Dennis, in whose pub this tournament was organized, lost 25:21 to Joe Davis.


8. Fred Davis, who won eight world titles, reached the 1978 semi-finals at the age of 64. Joe Davis, his brother, collapsed watching the semi-finals and died two months later.


9. The youngest world champion was Stephen Hendriev in 1990. The Scot was only 21 years old when he defeated Jimmy White 18:12.


10. Hendry was the youngest player to make his World Cup debut in 1986 until his record was broken by Belgian Luca Brecel in 2012 when she made her first World Cup appearance at 17 years and 45 days old.


11. In 2005, Sean Murphystal was the first player to qualify and eventually win the world title. Judd Trump almost repeated his achievement in 2011, but failed, losing in the final to John Higgins.


12. The TV audience for the World Cup final, in which Dennis Taylor defeated Steve Davis by winning in the last black, was 18.5 million in the UK alone. TV time, both are still unbeaten. However, when compared with China, in particular, with the audience of Ding Junhui's matches, these numbers are simply meager.


________________________________________________________

In addition, since the early 1990s, players who made the maximum break have also received a solid reward in the amount of 157,000 to 167,000 pounds (147,000 for the maximum itself and up to 20,000 for the highest break of the tournament); in 2011, this bonus was canceled, and since 2012, a “rolling jackpot” system has been introduced. Geography of the championship and its participants Over 83 years (with short breaks) of its history, the World Championship has visited 13 cities and 3 countries of the world (Great Britain (England), South African Republic, Australia).


Among the most successful players, both before and now, the British dominate, but recently participants from traditionally “non-nooker” countries have begun to appear. Since the beginning of the 90s, representatives of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland, China, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, the Netherlands, Iceland, Norway, Finland, Thailand, Pakistan, Malta and Belgium have played in the final stage of the tournament.Among The most successful non-British snooker players who have not yet finished their careers include Neil Robertson from Australia (winner of the 2010 World Cup), Stefan Mazrotsis from the Netherlands, who made it to the 16 finals at the 1997 World Cup, Ding Junhui and Liang Wenbo from China and Tony Drago from Malta.


Recently, information has periodically appeared that the World Cup could be moved to China, but not earlier than the current contract with the Sheffield Crucible ends. The desire to move the tournament to China is due to the high popularity of snooker in this country, as well as the possibility of attracting new major sponsors.


Ranking Points Ranking points at the World Championships have always been and remain the most valuable of all snooker tournaments. Although until 2005 the winners of the championship received 8,000 points, this was enough for them to sharply improve or strengthen their position in the world rankings, since the points in most other competitions were half as much. Often, it was the victory in the championship that brought snooker players with an insufficiently high rating the first place at the end of the season. For example, in 1990, Stephen Hendry became the first thanks to the victory in the championship, although before that he was far behind Steve Davis.

________________________________________________________



13. Jimmy White, Walter Donaldson and Fred Davis each lost six finals - and this is an anti-record. True, White, unlike Donaldson and Davis, has never been a world champion.


14. In the entire history of the World Championships, there was only one devastating match with a dry score. It happened in the first round in 1992, when 62-year-old Australian Eddie Charlton suffered a crushing 10-0 loss to then-champion John Parrott.


15. The maximum capacity of the Crucible is 980 spectators.


16. Ronnie O'Sullivan turned professional as Under-21 World Snooker Champion. Of the seventy-two of his first matches as a professional, Ronnie won seventy.


17. Alex Higgins was the first player to play 15 reds over blacks in the World Championship, although he never quite got to the 147-point streak.


18. At the age of 16 years and 11 months, Jimmy White became the youngest amateur world champion (this happened in 1970).


________________________________________________________

Points are distributed among the players to varying degrees depending on their position in the official rankings and the tournament result. For example, players with a lower rating (outside the Top 16, i.e. qualified) receive more points for losing in the round of 32 strongest (1/16 finals) than participants in the Top 16 with the same result. the history of the event has only been played a few times over the course of more than one year. In general, the dates for this tournament have been set for quite a long time - this is approximately mid-April - early May.


For example, the 2008 World Cup was held daily from April 19 to May 5. Qualifying matches For a long time (until 2010), the qualification of the main tour players in the main part of the tournament was usually carried out in two stages. The first was played by snooker players, who occupy the lowest positions in the official ranking. The first stage was usually held in winter, in early to mid-January. The second qualifying stage was held in the spring, two or three months before the start of the championship[29]. In 2010, it was decided to bring the two qualifying stages closer together in calendar terms and to be held, with short breaks, between February 26 and March 9.


Starting from 2011, all qualifying rounds were set to be held daily, one after another, with the only one-day break left to restore the gaming tables. Recently, the so-called pre-qualification, or qualification for players who are part of the WPBSA, but not playing in main tour. It, depending on the number of participants, can consist of several stages, and gives the opportunity for former professionals (or other WPBSA members who are not playing on the tour) to get into the main qualification and fight further for getting into the final stage. Previously, when significantly more snooker players were playing on the main tour, there was a pre-qualification for regular amateur players instead.

15-unique-photofacts-about-everything-in-the-world-that-you-should-learn-to-broaden-your-horizons

4. In 2015, Ford installed wide-angle front and rear 1-megapixel cameras on its cars that allow "seeing from around the corner."  The problem of "blind" zones has been solved.

top-100-interesting-things-from-wtf-facts-the-most-popular-facts-page-on-twitter

The concept of fact-checking came to new media from traditional journalism. More precisely, from the principles of the editorial office: an editorial filter is a necessary condition in the technology of a journalist's work. This technology is due to ethical principles: independence, objectivity, impartiality, accuracy. Due to the observance of these principles, the trust of the audience appears and the reputation of the publication is formed.

 

A fact is an event supported by reliable evidence. Different people may have different views on the same event, but you can't argue with the facts. That is why the fact should not only be established, but verified, rechecked and “cast in granite”.

 

Therefore, distortion of facts is a crime against objectivity and accuracy. Worse if it is a deliberate crime against independence and impartiality. It’s very bad when it’s a deliberate manipulative construct.

 

In modern digital communications, the concept of "factoid" is becoming more and more relevant. This is an initially non-existent fact, which, being published in the media, receives a lively reaction and assessment. And they, in turn, affect the picture of the world and the actions of people. The truth is not that important, in fact, if the effect is real.

 

Bemorepanda has prepared some interesting facts about everything in the world. WTF Facts is one of the most famous Twitter pages, here you will find a lot of interesting facts that will amaze you. Bemorepanda is at your disposal so that every day the most interesting things reach the screens of your devices.

 

Top 100 interesting things from WTF Facts

 

1.A speeding ticket in Finland

 

2.Free people in Mexico

 

3.Winning lottery

 

In Russia there is a famous story. This is very reminiscent of the episode of the cartoon about kolobok investigators, where the evil animal dealer Karbofos buys a porcelain elephant from a junk dealer, gets a certificate on him, breaks the now unnecessary trinket and says: "The elephant is bad, the certificate is good!" After that, according to this certificate, he leads a live elephant across the border. The rustic border guard stupidly looks at the certificate, correlates what is written in it with what he sees, and lets the animal across the border.

 

Likewise, people for the most part, following automatisms and stereotypes, trust the form, not critically perceiving the essence. There is a help - come through. On TV they said - it means the truth. Journalists won't lie! Even if the host of a popular talk show is in the frame, and not a journalist in the full sense of the word.

 

In the same way, various phenomena and events are actualized and legalized. Unconsciously or prudently, they are embedded in the form of "confirmed" facts in the information picture, as a result, distorting the entire canvas. This technique is actively used by propagandists, cyber fighters, network trolls and other manipulators of all stripes.

 

4.Support dogs in Zoo

 

5.Golden Arm

 

The fact checker's main weapon is doubt. Professional mistrust, reality check. Here, the logic and toolkit of fact-checking largely coincides with the methodologies and technologies of scientific work. Moreover, a course on source study specialized for historians can raise the level of quality of a journalist's work with sources by an order of magnitude. Be it living interlocutors or material carriers of natural and artificial origin.

 

Newspaper ducks, gossip, rumors, speculation, factoids, manipulations, irresponsible and malicious fakes, technical errors and typos - all this scum is opposed by fact-checking. This is a powerful weapon, which, alas, is often not well known to those who work in the field of mass communications.

While some are trying in every possible way to escape from knowledge, others are only looking for an excuse to learn something new. Since you are reading this, it means that you are definitely one of the latter. Sometimes, to find something interesting, you don't have to go far, just look around your grandmother's closet or the basement of your house. All the curious gizmos that can be found there have only one problem - sometimes it is difficult to understand what it is. With such questions, users often contact the “What is this thing” community on Reddit, where other users, whenever possible, try to tell about the origin of a particular find. We have again put together a collection of fascinating questions and answers for our beloved inquisitive readers, and we hope you miss your new knowledge 💖

20-things-taken-from-such-an-angle-and-in-such-a-form-in-which-you-have-hardly-ever-seen-them

Sometimes, in order to surprise us, it is enough just to photograph a thing that has long been familiar to us from an unusual angle. And sometimes things familiar to us take on an unusual look, in which we never expected to see them. Both cases are very interesting, but where can you see them? Of course here! How about natural blue bread, black eggs, or the sudden comparison of the foot of an elephant and a human? Already interested? It's only the beginning! Unusual views of natural sites and world sights await you, as well as things that we hope you will find unexpected.

 

This bread was dyed with the pulp of the American genipa, a South American fruit that the locals often used to paint their skin.

06-20-32-16232599611076461434

This fruit contains the organic compound genipin, which, upon contact with proteins (such as from skin or milk), oxidizes and turns from colorless to dark blue.

These are ordinary hard-boiled chicken eggs in natural hot water pools. The sulfur in the water makes the egg shells black and also gives it a specific smell.

 

Many have seen a photograph of a group of construction workers eating lunch at a high altitude, sitting on a beam. On the left, you can see photographer Charles Ebbets taking this picture.

06-20-32-16232599621461590141

One of the most famous photographs in the world, "Lunch on a Skyscraper" was taken in 1932.

You can see the adult version of the alpaca just above its skinny body.

 

What do beetles see crawling under a dandelion

06-20-32-1623259962821290771

Dandelion, which is somewhat similar to the Sun.

If you stand under the Eiffel Tower and look up, then it resembles a kaleidoscope

06-20-32-16232599621466796378

Such a spectacle can only be seen in the evening, when the tower burns like a Christmas tree.

 

On May 18, 1980, an earthquake caused by volcanic activity caused the largest recorded landslide on Mount St. Helens, followed by an eruption that claimed 57 lives. Photos of St. Helens before and after the disaster

Abandoned hotel on the road in Switzerland

06-20-32-1623259963689820000

The Belvédère began to languish in the 1960s with the development of cars that became much faster and more powerful. The hotel was designed for rest on the road, but if earlier the trip through the pass took 2-3 days, then later it turned into a 1-day trip there and back. People stopped staying at the hotel and had to close it.

 

Extremely rare view of the Statue of Liberty from the balcony located on its torch

reddit-is-now-valued-at-more-than-10-billion-top-10-interesting-facts-that-made-it-a-success

We know for sure that even today we can't really define it, and any topic that starts with "Reddit" raises the question "What is this?". Today, Bemorepanda is trying its best: to explain Reddit and show you why this site can mean the other internet to you.


Reddit, the self-proclaimed "home page of the Internet," says it is now valued at over $ 10 billion after raising another $ 410 million in funding, with the final round expected to grow to $ 700 million. The company continues to grow and improve its business while eliminating racist, misogynistic and other controversial communities as it prepares to go public at some point in the future.


How do you use Reddit?


You can find something interesting on the internet: a picture, a video, a clip or a news article. Want to promote it beyond your Facebook or Twitter page Enter Reddit and choose a subreddit (a subcategory) to enter that post. You put the link and give it an attractive headline (like the front page of a newspaper). Your post is voted by users through Upvote and Downvote.


If your post is very popular and users appreciate it, it will reach the front page of the subsection or main page of Reddit, from where it will be distributed and voted on by hundreds of thousands of people. For this effort you receive points in the form of Karma. The more karma you have, the more popular your posts are and whether your style is appreciated by other users.



What is Reddit? 


The downside of Reddit to many uninitiated is the way it looks. It is not a site that is based on design, but on content. It is pure content. The links are posted on the site, and there readers comment and vote. The popular mechanism for promoting news, images or videos makes a material that is the first a kind of balance of popularity.


It's hard for something to be popular on Reddit and not elsewhere. Reddit is thus a kind of social aggregator of news and content, which is based on the popular vote. The community is known to be very pretentious and tough, but the entry is harder, because Reddit catches on quickly, through the addiction it creates. What can be uploaded to Reddit? Almost anything. At the end of this material we have put some links to subreddits, i.e. subcategories of the site, based on common interests. But these are a tiny part.



Anyone can open a Subreddit and moderate it. It is important that users come to it. Indeed, the site is controversial because there are many subcategories that are quite difficult to digest, where even harsh images from road accidents or simply ... disgusting images are presented. But no one is forcing you to get there. What is erotic or porn is marked as such, what is boring or cliché is marked as such. Usually, what gets on the front page is very interesting. One of the most popular categories is IAmA, meaning Ask Me Anything, where over time many personalities have come to answer the questions of the rulers.


Bill Gates and Barack Obama were among the most popular sessions, with the US president even blocking the site due to the large number of visitors. Fascinating moments in Reddit history Some moments on Reddit were truly amazing, showing how powerful the internet is. Redeemers can donate money for certain causes with the help of Reddit Gold, and fundraising campaigns have been very successful if they have been well motivated. In December 2010, members of the Christian community on Reddit decided to raise funds.



Those in the subreddit of atheists wanted to give them a pleasant competition and they also raised money for Medecins sans Frontieres and the Clean Water Fund. The Islamist subreddit also raised money. In three weeks, the three communities raised $ 200,000. Also on Reddit is the biggest Secret Santa or Secret Santa program.


Every year since 2010, redditors come into play and receive another member for whom they will become Secret Santa. A total of 18,000 users participated and $ 662,000 was donated. In January 2010, Reddit donated $ 185,000 to the Haiti State Aid Fund.



If our explanations were not enough, we discovered this infographic on socialmouths.com and we need to share it with you.
