DUDLEY snooker star Reanne Evans has won a record 12th Women's World Snooker Championship.

Evans extended her own record when she defeated 19-year-old Nutcharut Wongharuthai 6-3 in the final in Bangkok, Thailand.

The 33-year-old hit a top break of 92 on the way to victory as she bagged the title for the first time since her success in 2016.

She won the women's title 10 years running from 2005 before China's Ng On-yee ended her reign.

However, Evans reclaimed the honour as she came out on top of a international field of 53 players on Sunday.

The final proved to be a high-quality affair as Wongharuthai took the opening frame before Evans hit back to bag the next two.

She went on top land a tournament-high run of 92 to secure the high-break prize on her way to overall victory.

“It feels pretty good,” a thrilled Evans told World Women's Snooker after the final. “It has been a long time coming after my 11th and it does mean more after losing during the past two years. I had such a good run [winning the title 10 years in a row from 2005-2014] but it obviously has been frustrating and gutting for that to end and to have lost a bit of confidence.

“The final was really tight all the way through. I was a little bit edgy at the start but I still felt good and towards the end I felt even better, I wasn’t letting it go this year.

“I’m really happy because the standard has been so good here this year.

“It could have been anyone winning it from the quarter-finals stage and fingers crossed that these players will keep competing and inspire others to play. I’m just happy to win against all the youngsters now, they are so attacking. A few shot selections have let them down but that’s about it and that comes with experience.

“The tournament has been amazing, one of the best ones ever. The facilities have been top class, the hospitality has been fantastic, it has been well-run and all the people have been brilliant. It has also been amazing to have so many matches streamed live which will only add to the interest in women’s snooker.”
