Russell wins record eighth World Billiards Championship

Mike Russell from England won the 2007 World Billiards Championship.

Fellow Englishman Chris Shutt from England took silver after losing 2166-1710 in the final. Defending champion Geet Sethi (India) and David Causier (England) finished joint third.

Russell had the two highest breaks in the event; a 494 and a 482.

He has now won a record eight world pro titles; 1989, 1991, 1996, 1999, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2007. Some say it is nine since his name was also engraved on the trophy in 2000, even though there was no world championship that year

The championship was held July 18-22 at the Northern Snooker Centre, Leeds, England.
