Steve Davis prevailed in the final by defeating Terry Griffiths, who made his third consecutive Masters final, 9–5 to go with the World, UK and the English Professional Championship titles he had won in the past year. Jimmy White made his debut, the first of 26 consecutive appearances at the Masters. Tony Meo equalled the tournament highest break of 136, set by Terry Griffiths the previous year, in his 5–0 quarter-final win against Cliff Thorburn, and spiritedly pulled back from 0–5 to 4–5 before losing 4–6 in semi-final against Davis.
