A POSSIBLE REMATCH?

Price was the third seed for the 2021 tournament. His victory marked the first time a Welsh player won the World Championship, but his road to victory was not an easy one. In order to get to the fourth round, Price defeated Jamie Lewis in a last set decider and Brendan Dolan in a sudden death last leg decider. He then defeated Mervyn King before topping Daryl Gurney last leg decider before topping Stephen Bunting 6-4 to earn his way to the final.

Anderson was the No. 13 seed heading into the 2021 World Championship. Outside of a 4-3 win over Mensur Suljovic, Anderson did not struggle to much to make the final.
