World Championship 2013: Picture Perfect I

As in previous years during my stay in Sheffield, I will not only be bringing you the latest news from the 2013 World Championship, but I will also endeavour to bring you the best of my photographs from in or around the Crucible Theatre.

As well as my own however, I have very kindly been given permission by local photographer Andy Chubb to use a few of his excellent photos, some of which show the extensive set-up work at the Crucible yesterday to get the arena ready for today. You can view his excellent work here at his website.
