Trump books himself a place in the QFs
The second day of this year's Masters edition has started with Bristol's Judd Trump beating Stuart Bingham 6-3, in order to book himself a place in the quarter-finals where he's meeting Ronnie O'Sullivan.

The recent winner of the UK Championship was merciless and after the mid-session interval, which ended on a tight 2-2, put his nose in front and kept on winning one frame at a time to score for victory.

The 22 year-old lad from Bristol started his match against Australian Open champion, Stuart Bingham by taking the opener with an 87 break. "Naughty" snooker in action.

However, Bingham managed to draw level with the first occasion and also to take the lead 2-1 by hitting in breaks of 69, 24 and 25.
The mid-session interval kicked off with Judd using a steady 107 to change the scoreline in 2-2.

Sadly for Bingham, his run ends with the 1st round match
After the break Bingham collected 73 consecutive points off the table to go 3-2 in front, but unfortunately for him that was going to be the last frame to go his way.

Trump took care of the following ones with a series of 121, 52 and 50 to end the snooker encounter in his favour, 6-3.

Now he's due to meet an old time rival, Ronnie O'Sullivan in the quarter-finals. The lads have quite a history together, their last two meetings ending with Trump prevailing (during the PTC 9 Event Judd won 4-3 and during the UK Championship he beat Ronnie 6-5). Can "The Rocket" change the pattern? We shall have to wait and see on Thursday from 12.30pm (UK time).

The day isn't over peeps, so please be sure to clear your schedule for tonight as from 7pm (UK time) Shaun Murphy is facing the recent winner of Power Snooker event, Martin Gould.
