Tom Ford – Chang Bingyu Match Prediction | 03-10-2019 09:30

In reaching the semi-finals, Trump was guaranteed to return to world number one after the tournament for the first time since 2013.[23] Selby won three of the first four frames to lead 31.[19] However, Trump won the next four frames to lead 53 after the first session with breaks of 97, 108, 97 and 116.[19] In the second session, Trump won the first three frames to lead 83 including two more 90+ breaks. The first semi-final took place on 9 August 2019, between Selby and Trump.

Two top-16 ranked players were defeated in first round; Mark Williams lost to Jak Jones and Barry Hawkins to Daniel Wells both 62.[11] Ding Junhui defeated three fellow Chinese players in the first three rounds, overcoming Zhao Xintong, Xiao Guodong and Liang Wenbo to reach the quarter-finals. Defending champion Mark Allen conceded just four frames to draw Ding, having defeated Sam Craigie, Mark Davis (both 61) and Ali Carter (62).[12][13][14] Allen defeated Ding 63 to reach the semi-finals.

Yan Bingtao defeated Mark Joyce 52 in the final, winning the event and earning his first career ranking title. Lisowski scored the highest break of the tournament, a 145. Qualifying for the event was held between 10 and 13 June 2019 at the Ponds Forge International Sports Centre in Sheffield, England. No players from the top 20 in the world reached the quarter-finals. The event had a total prize fund of 278,000 with the winner receiving 50,000. Yan became the first player born after 2000 to win a ranking event, as well as the first teenager to win a ranking event in 13 years since Ding Junhui won the 2006 Northern Ireland Trophy aged 19.

The championship began on 4 August 2019, with the first round alongside heldover qualifier matches.[8] Two matches in the heldover qualifier rounds were decided on a deciding frame.

Superstar Zhao Xintong is finally showing us what he is capable of. In fact, he did so well, he qualified for the World Grand Prix for being among the Top 32 players in the Order of Merit. Since he dropped off the tour and qualified immediately via Q School last year, he was on a rampage. At the start of the season, he reached the China Championship semi-finals, beating Anthony McGill, Mark Williams and Barry Hawkins.

The final was played as a best-of-19-frames match held over two sessions on 11 August 2019, refereed by Lyu Xilin.[26] Trump won the first five frames of the match making a century break in frame three.

If he didnt hit the cluster of reds too hard, then he wouldve defeated Judd Trump in the decider. Now he just needs to return to the Top 32 where he belongs. He was very close to causing a shock in the World Championship too. The fact that he was one of the most feared qualifiers showed what he is capable. Now Trump is the World Champion. The Thai player has his monkey off his back of getting a ranking title. I just hope he actually wins more often because he has the talent of a Top 16 player.

Century breaks[edit]

Page is rated as the most exciting and talented British prospect in recent times at just 17 years of age. In 2016, he reached the 2016 EBSA Under-18 Championship and the 2016 World Under-18 champion. He received a wildcard in the 2017 Welsh Open and beat professionals Jason Weston and John Astley to reach the third round. Ive already blabbered on Jackson Page in one of my recent articles, so Ill try and not be repetitive.

These were the 137th and 138th official maximum breaks in professional competition. Ronnie O'Sullivan made his 14th maximum break in professional competition in the 5th frame of his last 64 match against Elliot Slessor. It was only the second time that two 147s were made at the main stage of a professional ranking event, the first time being at the 2008 World Championship. The following day Stuart Bingham made his fourth maximum break in professional competition in the 7th frame of his last 32 match against Ricky Walden.

Trump and Allen tied for the highest break during the televised stages, both scoring 141, with Trump also making 12 centuries throughout the tournament. Qualifying for the event took place 1417 June 2019 in Ponds Forge International Sports Centre in Sheffield, England. Tom Ford made the highest break of qualifying, with a maximum break, the fourth of his career, in his 61 win in qualifying over Fraser Patrick.

Allen, however, lost 96 to England's Shaun Murphy in the semi-finals. Reigning world champion Judd Trump won the event and his 12th ranking championship with a 103 win over Murphy in the final. Northern Irish cueist Mark Allen was the defending champion, after defeating Australian Neil Robertson in the previous year's final. In winning the event, Trump returned to the world number one position, that he had last held in 2013.


Waleed Majid (born 22 September 1987 in Doha, Qatar) is a Qatari professional pool player. Majid has played in several World Cup of Pool events representing Qatar, including reaching the quarter-finals at the 2015 event.Majid has also achieved well at the World Pool Masters competition, reaching the quarterfinals in 2015, defeating Daryl Peach.Majid has also played Snooker at a high amateur level, most recently playing in the World Amateur Snooker Championship in 2018.

But can he follow up his performances in his second year? Zhao has to mature and know when to tighten the game up rather than continuing to throw the kitchen sink at each pot. He will go further up the rankings table because he is on his second year of his two year card. As well as reaching the Welsh Open quarter-final, he also qualified for the World Championship too. However, despite being 5-1 up, he showed his inexperience and let an out-of-form Mark Selby back in the match and lost 10-7.

It will be interesting to see if he can cope with the pressure and of course, how difficult the main tour is compared to the non-professional events. Jackson Page kept blossoming on the amateur circuit, winning a trophy cabinets worth of European and World titles. He finally qualified for the main tour by winning the European U-21 Championship. We will soon know. He beat Irelands Ross Bulman 5-1.
