Judd Trump is at risk of elimination from the Betfred World Championship after falling 6-3 behind against Liang Wenbo in the opening session at The Crucible.

The former finalist, the second favourite for this year's title in Sheffield, watched as his Chinese opponent secured two centuries - 117 and 107 - while he struggled.

Trump secured the following two frames, a 58 and an 86 - before Liang responded by winning four of the next five, and demonstrated fine composure by winning three of those on colours as Trump remained competitive.

Should Liang progress beyond the first round on Thursday, it will represent the first time he has done so since 2008, when on his first appearance he reached the quarter-finals.
