Judd Trump meets Ronnie O'Sullivan once more
Judd Trump beat Stuart Bingham 4-1 in order to set his quarter-finals match with Ronnie O'Sullivan, while Mark Selby booked himself a place in the next round also after hammering Martin Gould with the same scoreline.

The lad from Bristol and winner of the 2011 UK Championship, Judd Trump had no difficulty whatsoever to beat Stuart Bingham 4-1 and get a well deserved place in the quarter-finals.

The Australian Open champion, Bingham lost to Trump during the first round of this year's Masters by 6-3, this snooker encounter not going very well either.

Although Stuart was the one to break the ice with a 74 break, when he missed the black off its spot during the next frame on 33, Trump took his chances to draw level with a 73. The next frame saw the youngster hitting another 73, while runs of 100 and 49 were closing the match on a 4-1 result.

Trump is meeting with an old rival, Ronnie O'Sullivan in tomorrow's quarter-finals. The boys had this season's first encounter during the PTC 9 Event final, when the three-time world champion lost 4-3, then it came the UK Championship when he lost again this time by 6-5, the Masters when Trump prevailed once more 6-2 and now here we go again with the Welsh Open. Will O'Sullivan take revenge this time? 

Selby will need to rise his game level if he want to win
As Trump was about to win the last frame of the match, at table number two Mark Selby and Martin Gould were just wrapping up there first frame!!! Needless to say it was a very disappointing match, both players showing themselves in poor form.

However, after runs of 48, 62 and 57 Selby managed to win a battle of cues that lasted for more than two houses with a 4-1 result.

Tomorrow, the quarter-finals are kicking off and below you can check the match schedule:

Shaun Murphy v. Mark Allen
Ronnie O'Sullivan v. Judd Trump

Ding Junhui v. Stephen Lee
Stephen Maguire v. Mark Selby
