Willie Smith (1886–1982) was an English professional player of snooker and English billiards. Smith was "by common consent, the greatest all-round billiards player who ever lived".
He entered the World Billiards Championship in 1920 and then again in 1923, winning it on both occasions. Arguments with the governing body prevented him from taking part in the competition more often.
He turned to snooker for purely monetary reasons but never really took to the game. His natural talent as a billiards player still enabled him to reach the World Snooker Championship final in 1933 and 1935 where he was beaten by Joe Davis.
