The International Championship offers Judd Trump a chance to extend his dominance over the World Snooker Tour in Tianjin, China.


Trump has produced masterful displays in recent weeks to claim three successive ranking tournament victories: English Open, Wuhan Open and the Northern Ireland Open.

The former world champion's relentless form has launched him to the top of the one-year ranking list with £344,000 to his name so far, more than double the prize money haul of Mark Williams and Barry Hawkins in second and third respectively.

Trump is already the man to beat in Tianjin due to his status as reigning champion from four years ago, the last time the competition was staged. He defeated Shaun Murphy 10-3 in the showpiece encounter.

Luca Brecel is yet to replicate the form that launched him to his maiden world title earlier in 2023. He hasn't featured since the English Open following a row over a potential exhibition tournament in Macau that would have seen him and four other top stars, including Mark Selby, miss time on the regular tour.
