Mark Williams MBE

'The Welsh Potting Machine'

2x Snooker World Champion

Mark James Williams, MBE (born 21 March 1975, Cwm, Wales) is a Welsh professional snooker player who has been World Champion twice, in 2000 and 2003. Often noted for his single-ball potting, Mark Williams has earned the nickname, The Welsh Potting Machine. Mark Williams has been ranked the world number 1 for a total of three seasons in his career.

The first left-handed player to win the World Snooker Championship, Mark Williams has won 18 ranking tournaments (fifth on the all-time list), including the UK Championship and the Masters twice each.

Mark Williams is only the third player after Steve Davis and Stephen Hendry to win all three majors in one season. Following his second World Championship his form declined, and he dropped out of the top 16 following the 2007/2008 season, but regained his place for 2009/2010. Williams since went on to win two further ranking titles, the 2010 China Open and the 2011 German Masters.
