JUDD TRUMP has one hand on the World Snooker Championship trophy after an excellent closing session on Sunday night time.
The Juddernaut leads John Higgins 12-5 going into the ultimate day of the match.
The Bristol potter loved one of many nice classes in Crucible historical past, hitting breaks of 135 and 114 and enjoying some excellent pictures.
He received eight consecutive frames and wishes six extra to gather the trophy and £500,000 prize cash.
If he continues like this as we speak, there won’t be a night session on the ultimate day for the third time in historical past.
Steve Davis, the six-time world champion, stated: “It’s going to take a monumental effort from John Higgins to return again from this place.
“I’ve seen some astonishing snooker right here – loads of it from Ronnie O’Sullivan – and that was up there.
“He was medical in addition to good and he fairly rightly received a standing ovation. I’d hate to be sitting the place John was.
“Judd has to sleep on a lead and the truth that he could possibly be world champion perhaps that can have an effect on him.
“I believe the group had been a bit overawed by it.
“You do not typically see that degree of play in matchplay.”
