Body 12 – the ultimate one earlier than the mid-session interval. And an early mistake from Trump as he leaves Jones a pot into the nook. Nevertheless, the Welshman can solely make 8 earlier than lacking a tough pink to the left nook, bridging over the pack.

He will get luck although because the black runs secure and he doesn’t go away a pottable pink on.

Judd Trump 4-6 Jak Jones

Trump may do with profitable this body rapidly and making a pleasant, confidence-building break. He’s having to maneuver the cueball as much as the baulk finish for the second however pots the blue into the inexperienced pocket to get it again on its spot.

Lands awkwardly on the following pink although… The run of the balls not going for him for the time being. Has to play secure off a pink after a break of 11 – he leads 34-0 however Jones has a take a look at a protracted pink. He misses the pot and the pink cannons the pink again into play. Trump has a tough reduce on a pink to get again in and he makes it. One other probability for the 2019 champion.

The excessive worth colors weren’t nicely positioned and Trump finally runs too far out of place on 23, so tucks in behind the yellow. He was a bit unfortunate that the pack didn’t break up higher.

Judd Trump 4-6 Jak Jones

Huge shot for Trump as he decides to crash into the primary pack of reds off the blue when transferring the break to 17. Connects nicely however a bit unfortunate as he’s solely left with a skinny reduce on a pink into the left center pocket. He makes it! Nice pot and cannons into the blue which stops the cueball operating too distant, so he’s on the brown.

The break strikes past 20 though blue is now off its spot and the pink and black are tied up.

Judd Trump 4-6 Jak Jones

Proper, each gamers left the sector for a fast break after that final body and I’m not shocked. 90-odd minutes for 2 frames, let’s hope they begin rushing issues alongside barely…

That’s higher from Trump! Pulls out a shocking lengthy pink and follows it up with the inexperienced. Black is out of fee and when he performs the pink, it too is noticed someplace it might probably’t be potted so he’ll be utilizing the blue for now.

Judd Trump 4-6 Jak Jones

Jones digs out a pleasant pot on the yellow after which tidies up inexperienced and brown as nicely. Misses the lengthy blue however Trump has little interest in enjoying on for snookers.

A marathon, 55-minute body however Jones comes out on prime and now leads 6-4. That’s an enormous blow for Trump.
