Trump has won his last ten ranking event finals
Trump edged out Neil Robertson 9-8 in a superb final on Sunday to land his 18th ranking title, becoming the first player to win three Home Nations events.
The £70,000 top prize boosts him up to second on the one-year list, behind BetVictor European Masters champion Mark Selby who lost in the semi-finals on Saturday.
Robertson’s £30,000 runner-up prize moves up from seventh to third. John Higgins earned his first prize money of the season with a run to the semi-finals and he’s up to seventh.
Jak Jones made his first ranking quarter-final, ten years after turning pro
Welshman Jak Jones reached the quarter-finals of a ranking event for the first time in his career and he leaps from 46th to 12th. Robbie Williams also made the last eight and he’s up to 13th.
