👍 RIGHT THAT’S ALL FOLKS
What a final that was! Trump fully deserved that and it looked that maybe he’s come of age this week with the new mature way he played that final. It’ll be interesting to see what bounce that win gives him going forward this season anyway.
🍾 CELEBRATION TIME
Time for the new Masters champion Judd Trump to have a glass of bubbly with the Eurosport pundits😊

🏆 O’SULLIVAN 4-10 TRUMP (53)
That’s it! Trump holds his nerve superbly and he makes another half century to walk away with the title. In truth, 10-4 is about right overall as the difference in form between the two was evident from the first frame until the last.
It’s been eight long years since Trump won the UK Championship and we’re all surprised it took him so long to grab another one of these major titles – but nobody is surprised with the kind of snooker he’s been able to play in this final.
His focus has been a major factor for the duration of the final, never wavering and his shot selection also was spot on as he deservedly grabbed the trophy.
🤦♂️ IN THE JAWS (O’SULLIVAN 4-9 TRUMP)
Ronnie cuts a pink into the corner pocket that somehow, somehow, stays up after hitting the jaws. VAR may well rule it over the line but it refuses to drop and this now is the golden chance for Trump to claim the title.
🙏 GET OUT OF THAT! (O’SULLIVAN 4-9 TRUMP)
Juss Trump with an outrageous snooker that Ronnie can just come off a couple of cushions and smack into the pack of reds, splitting them up and leaving Trump a decent look at a hefty, and match-winning break.
He runs out of position early doors though and can make just 15, that’s a poor return from a promising situation – O’Sullivan still in it.
💯 O’SULLIVAN (109) 4-9 TRUMP
O’Sullivan’s not going quietly, just as we thought, and this time he gets his chance after Trump went in off after potting a wild red with far too much pace on the ball to keep the white ball safe. That was a chance to polish this off and that may weigh on his mind, especially given the Rocket’s response.
He slammed in another ton, his second of the match, and it shows that there’s nothing wrong with his break building now once he gets in the balls, but it all depends now on whether Trump can take his next chance as he only needs one more.
O’SULLIVAN 3-9 TRUMP (68) – INTERVAL
That could just have sealed it for Trump! He pounced on Ronnie’s mistake beautifully, controlled again but went aggressive when going into the pack of reds off the easy black and from there, yet again, he made no mistake.
Again Trump has answered every time Ronnie has asked the question and he’s really shown superb mental strength and focus during this final, that’s never really dropped.
🙆♂️ IN THE JAWS! (O’SULLIVAN 3-8 TRUMP)
Ronnie looks for all the world like making it 8-4 as he gets in among the ball with them well spread and even a few reds up the table as options, but his black into the bottom corner hits both jaws and refuses to drop – allowing Trump to get back to the table.
💯📺 WATCH: CENTURY FROM RONNIE
What a time to make the first century of this year’s @Dafabet Masters final!
💯 O’SULLIVAN (114) 3-8 TRUMP
At last we’ve got a century break! Tremendous stuff from O’Sullivan and tellingly it came after Trump missed with the rest, and in the blink of an eye a classic Ronnie century gets him back to within five frames and he’s asking Trump all the questions again.
The next frame is now huge just before the mid-session interval as 8-4 will all of a sudden not look as wide a margin as it should, but 9-3 obviously puts Trump on the brink.
Just look what just one frame’s done to the match odds as well – that’s the Ronnie factor!
📋 O’SULLIVAN 2-8 TRUMP (88)
What can you say about Trump after he responds again to any kind of comeback thoughts from O’Sullivan with a fine 88 break. O’Sullivan missed his chance early but Trump flew right in with the opening pot, albeit with a touch of luck in it, and then he was racing around the table once in among the balls as his eyes lit up with the possibility of a century break on the cards.
He fell short, but there’s no chance he’s bothered – he’s been so focused all day, just ticking the frames off one at a time will be his main aim, and he’s only got two more to go!
ROMA STAR LOVES SNOOKER!
📋 O’SULLIVAN (46) 2-7 TRUMP
Just the 46 break needed but a lot better stuff from O’Sullivan as we resume this fascinating final encounter. Just the hint of a Trump wobble in that frame and he’s had a couple of hours now to think about the prospect of winning his first Masters title. He’s still huge favourite but that’s the best possible start from the Rocket.
🚀 RONNIE’S STILL GOT IT!
🙌 WE’RE BACK!
And what an ovation for both players, but especially O’Sullivan who has the crowd on their feet as he enters the fray. He’s got a huge following but even the neutral will be hoping he can make a real game of this tonight.
⏲️ BACK AT 7PM – ANY CHANCE OF A COMEBACK?
If anyone can, it’s the Rocket, even though Trump’s been playing excellent snooker so far, it’s not been of the highest order and a couple of quick frames from O’Sullivan will rattle the nerves – then it would be anyone’s game!
It’s 12/1 for a 10-9 O’Sullivan win, now that would be something! Join us at 7pm to find out.
📽️ TRUMP’S BEEN MAKING POTS LIKE THIS ALL DAY
Judd Trump utterly dominant in the Masters final
📊 STATS & ODDS
All Trump again and it’d take some comeback from O’Sullivan to pull this out of the bag.
Trump – Points: 564 | high break 89 | 50 breaks: 5
O’Sullivan – Points: 209 | high break 69 | 50 breaks: 1
📋 O’SULLIVAN 1-7 TRUMP (66) – END OF SESSION
Another fine break from Trump to compile a knock of 66 but this time he can’t make the frame safe and after a wild attempt he leaves the door open for O’Sullivan to try and save himself by taking the last frame of the session. Ronnie’s not at his game though and he leaves a red in the jaws of the bottom left pocket which Trump knocks in via the rest.
That’s enough for the frame, and that could just be the frame that does all the damage as they’ll return later on tonight with Trump needing just three for victory while O’Sullivan faces the prospect of having to win nine out of 11 frames to win his eighth Masters title.
HE’S BLOWN IT!
Ronnie leaves a red in the jaws and that’s enough for Trump to step up now and surely take the frame..
RONNIE’S GOT A CHANCE
Huge visit now for O’Sullivan as Trump breaks down, a clearance here and 6-2 would make the world of difference to a 7-1 lead.
