Cue Action – Trump Tops Pile – By Will Vallely

Judd Trump capped off an excellent week by winning the inaugural International Championship in Chengdu China.

The newly crowned world number one beat Aussie Neil Robertson 10-8 in the final to win the championship and take the £125,000 cheque.

Trump showed his mental toughness to win despite trailing 8-6 to an opponent who rarely fails to cross the finish line.

Former World Champion and current Masters Champion Robertson boasted an impressive finals record with seven victories out of eight finals.

Trump, 23, became only the tenth man to top the rankings after a semi-final thrashing of Peter Ebdon.

It was Mark Selby who was knocked off the top of the pile after an impressive 14 month reign.

Trump has begun to show his huge potential over the past few seasons after being touted as a future number one for a considerable amount of time.

The International Championship was his third ranking title adding to his previous victories at the China Open and the UK Championship.

It’s exciting times for snooker as all 13 tour events this season have been won by different players.
