At the age of 43, he became the second oldest winner at the Crucible Theatre.

The Triple Crown (sometimes called snooker's majors) in snooker is winning the three most prestigious tournaments; the World Championship, the UK Championship, and the invitational Masters. These three events together make up the Triple Crown Series with each individual tournament referred to as a Triple Crown event. The individual events are deemed to be the most reputable, despite not always being worth the most ranking points or prize fund. Players who win all three tournaments are said to have "won the Triple Crown", either over their career, or in one season alone. The Triple Crown dates back to the 1969 World Snooker Championship, when the event changed reverted to a knockout format from the prior "challenge" basis.

As of 2020, 11 players have won all three events, with both Stephen Hendry and Ronnie O'Sullivan winning each event five times or more. O'Sullivan has the most titles, having won 19 individual tournaments. Three players have won all three in the space of a season, with Mark Williams, Steve Davis each and Hendry having done so on two occasions. Shortly before the start of the Masters tournament in January 2020, the name was officialised as part of a "Triple Crown series", with any player who had won the Triple Crown in the past being able to adorn their waistcoat with a crown symbolising their achievements.
