Judd Trump

Trump had shown fine form getting to round three having whitewashed Mark Joyce and Vinnie Calabrese in rounds one and two earlier on in the day.

Robertson, in contrast, played one less match on his way to the third round – but it was a more taxing affair, a 4-2 win against David Morris.

Trump was first to get amongst the balls and he posted a 54 but breaks of 37 and 36 gave ‘Robbo’ the first frame, but Judd replied with a run of 72 to level things up at one apiece.

Breaks of 48 and 70 gave Robertson a two frame advantage but Trump topscored with 125 in the fifth to cut the arrears before grounding out the sixth to level matters.

Robertson dug in and won a tense, tactical deciding frame 63-50 to progress.

Joining Robertson in the next round is John Higgins who overcame Daniel Wells 4-3.

Higgins took a scrappy opening frame 64-18 before Wells posted a 104 to level things up before the pair exchanged frames to leave the scores at 2-2.

A run of 71 gave Wells the advantage but Higgins produced breaks of 84 and 61 to seal his progression.
