Judd trump cue ball

Judd Trump is a special talent in the snooker world with incredible talent, power, and cue ball control.

During his World Championship quarter-final clash with Stuart Bingham on April 27, he executed an amazing pink which caused the white ball to look like it was dancing across the table.

His book of shots is bursting at the seams with all the classics, but also some added shots of his own. After he secured the 19th frame, Trump decided that he would bring some charisma to The Crucible.

After being 8-5 down he fought back and began skipping around the table as he engaged with the crowd and had a huge smile on his face.

The 2019 World Champion filled the audience faces with smiles as he performed a mind-boggling shot.

The white was underneath the baulk rail and Trump pushed the pink into the bottom left causing the cue ball to hit the bottom cushion before it spun back and came to a stop.

The incredible trick shot was met with rapturous applause and even the commentators were impressed with the skills on display.

Neal Foulds was commentating for Eurosport and said: “How about that for a shot? That was an extreme top spin. It was a Judd Trump special.”

The rest of the match unfolded much the same with Trump demonstrating his cheeky side with the result ultimately falling in Trumps favour.

Trump went on to face Ronnie O’Sullivan in the finals with people questioning whether Trump could make the impossible happen. However, O’Sullivan once again showed why he is one of the greatest players of all time as he secured his seventh Crucible title equalling Stephen Hendry’s record.

Once the final break of the match was completed, O’Sullivan and Trump engaged in a lengthy embrace as the pair praised each other on a good game.

Trump was unable to hide his admiration for O’Sullivan saying: “He will go down to the best player of all-time. He keeps getting better and better. His determination, dedication … you can see it out there. He was the best player throughout the tournament by quite far. I was happy to just make a match out of it this afternoon.”
