World Snooker Championship: Judd Trump beats Tom Ford to reach quarter-finals

Must Read

Nine of the 16 seeds have already been eliminated from this competition, but Trump has been in superb form as he has swept into the last eight for a 10th time.

On Friday Trump held a 6-2 advantage and extended that to 9-3, before ending the second session with an 11-5 lead, only needing two more frames for victory.

A break of 76 helped Ford win the opening frame of Saturday, before Trump moved to the brink with an excellent break of 107 – the 979th century of his career.

He missed out on his 980th shortly afterwards, but the break of 79 was enough to clinch the vistory.

Elsewhere, Scotland’s Stephen Maguire held a 5-3 advantage over England’s 2005 world champion Shaun Murphy and the pair shared the opening two frames on table one.

The last-16 matches are the best of 25, so the first to 13.

Later on, Northern Ireland’s Mark Allen, who could end the tournament as world number one, takes on Scotland’s four-time champion John Higgins in what promises to be one of the matches of the competition so far.

The evening session at 19:00 features the start of two last-16 matches as Joe O’Connor, winner over four-time champion Mark Selby in round one, takes on Kyren Wilson.

Stuart Bingham, a Crucible winner in 2015, faces fellow Englishman Jack Lisowski.
