Tournament preview

Defending champion Judd Trump is looking to bounce back from a shock third-round defeat at the Welsh Open at this week’s Players Championship.

The world No 1 was beaten 4-2 by Hossein Vafaei at Celtic Manor in Newport to crash out early and complained afterwards about the venue and the table.

Trump beat Yan Bingtao 10-4 in the final of this event last year with O’Sullivan the victor in both of the previous years.

His younger rival Trump is seeking a third success at this tournament, which began in 2011 and is played between the top 16 players on a one-year ranking list.

The 11th ranking event of 2021, Ronnie O’Sullivan, Neil Robertson and Mark Selby are among those who will be looking to thwart Trump in pursuit of the £125,000 prize.

Six-time world champion O’Sullivan suffered defeat in the final of the Welsh Open to Jordan Brown, the world No 81.
