Henk Robijns from the Netherlands shows some of his caramboles from the 1933 championship in Cairo, and two trick shots.

The UMB World Three-cushion Championship is a professional carom billiards tournament in the discipline of three-cushion billiards, organized mostly annually by the Union Mondiale de Billard. Until 1953 it was organized by the UIFAB (Union Internationale des Federations d'Amateurs de Billard). During a dispute between the UMB and BWA (Billiards World Cup Association) the UMB decided not to organize the championship between 1988-1991. Instead the overall winner of the World Cup was announced as also the world champion.[1]:p785

From 1928 to 1958 and from 1985 to 1987, matches were played as a single frame with a run to 50 points (or 60 points between 1960 to 1984). From 1994 to 2011 the tournament was played in a set-system, the winner achieving the best of five. Since 2012 it has been changed back to a single frame with the run to 40 points.
