Trump wins a scrappy match against Brecel to advance to Champion of Champions

“It’s a really good feeling when you’re so confident,” says Stephen. Snooker seems so easy and you think you’re going to clear the table every time you get to it.” Mark faces Judd Trump in tonight’s quarter-finals and I can’t wait.

Allen 3-2 Perry (60-7)

Mark makes this so easy.

Allen 3-2 Perry (13-7)

OK, here we go. Joe looks desperately around the table for a safety, but can’t find one, so he has a hack – and I mean a hack – in another right corner. He comes close and you’d expect Mark, given his form, proximity to the line and the two easy misses that gave away two shots, to sort things out from here.

Allen 3-2 Perry (0-7)

Joe swings a long red into the right corner knowing that if he misses it could be his last shot. But, as Stephen notes, he hits it so hard he leaves nothing behind, then a phone goes off. “Don’t panic, it’s taking longer,” says the judge, increasing the pressure. “Just answer it, tell them you’re on your way.” Anyway, Mark leaves another one over a right corner, a much easier one, which Joe clears before sticking the white one to the bulkhead and slamming home the brutally devilish red that makes him shy. All he can manage is a blue.

Allen 3-2 Perry

Mark has scored almost twice as many points as Joe, and even if he misses the green, it’s not until he has 110 in the bag. He is one away.

Allen 2-2 Perry (55-0)

Mark gathers carefully, the cue ball does its bidding and with apparent joy; what a feeling that must be.

Allen 2-2 Perry (7-0)

We begin frame five with a long safety exchange, red spreads and two very close to the right corner – the first mistake is likely to be costly. But when Mark leaves one, Joe tries to catch it so thinly that he misses it completely and it should cost him.

Allen 2-2 Perry

I’m looking for batteries, but Joe gets the next chance, takes it, and while Mark has easily been the better player, he’s stuck in a best of three due to some really bad misses when he was inside.
