Established in 1927, The World Snooker Championship is the main snooker tournament on the world. A huge prize pool of £1,750,000 is shared between the best players from around the globe. We’re here to preview whether a bet on Judd Trump would make a fortune.
The tournament will be held from 21 April to 7 May 2018. It’s the 41st tournament to be held at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, England. A defending champion, Mark Selby, has won the tournament three times, but we think that this year the winner’s share of £425,000 will go to Judd Trump. Here are some reasons to bet on Judd Trump.
Trump is a professional snooker player from Bristol whose career started with some noticeable victories. Trump was only 14 when he reached the World Under-21 Championship semi-finals. Moreover, Trump was the youngest player to make a strong 147, beating Jamie Jones’s record.
Trump’s current track record includes 17 tournament wins and 502 century breaks.
The successful start led him to an excellent professional career. Trump entered the professional level and became the youngest player after Stephen Hendry and Ronnie O’Sullivan to reach the World Championship and the youngest player to qualify for the finals of ranking tournament.
Trump won his first ranking title in the final of the China Open, defeating Mark Selby. Even if he didn’t succeed in the finals of the 2011 World Snooker Championship, where he was beaten by John Higgins, his performance at the 2011 UK Championship led him to defeat Mark Allen 10-8 in the final and win the title.
