Not only did 33-year-old Trump consider himself the odds-on finalist, but Williams, who at 47 became the oldest finalist since 1983 — when six-time world champion Ray Reardon made it to the final. age 50
Trump reached the final by defeating Ryan Day, Barry Hawkins and Stuart Bingham, while Williams defeated seven-time world champions Ronnie O’Sullivan and Jack Lisowski after eliminating David Gilbert.
The afternoon stretch of the final, which lasted until the tenth frame for a one-sided win, ended with Trump leading 5-3. Nevertheless, Williams started very well, winning the first frame with a break of 138. However, this Englishman, who brought four matches in a row – it is true that he accumulated Welsh error after error – shook the fourth with a streak of 106 points. Then Williams made it 4-3 (he also pushed a 100 break in the round), and Trump won the final match of the stage again.
In the continuation of the evening, they started with one frame won each, then Williams again took minus one. In the twelfth frame, Williams took advantage of a mistake by Trump, who was also unlucky, to tie the match at 6-6. The Welshman then narrowly won the thirteenth game to take the lead. Trump then tied the game, which lasted nearly an hour.
The last frames began with a series of 107 points for Williams – 8-7 for the Welshman – and then Trump made up for his deficit with a frame full of stunts (8-8).
In the seventeenth frame, Trump stopped after 59 points, but Williams could only answer with 40 points, then the Englishman cleared the table and advanced with a score of 9-8. So he was one frame away from ultimate success. In the 18th game, Williams was allowed to start, but soon he made a mistake, and Trump took advantage of the opportunity and won this chance too (breaking 126!), Giving him the final victory.
Trump achieved his second Masters success, and his fourth Triple Crown win (1x World Championship, 1x UK Championship, 2x Masters).
Trump received £250,000 (112 million forints) for his success.
