Judd Trump Odds: The Ace 7/2 for World Snooker Championship glory after retaining World Open crown

Judd Trump secured his second World Open title with a 10-4 win over Ding Junhui and The Ace in the Pack is 7/2 to reign supreme in the 2024 World Snooker Championship.

Trump was triumphant in the last edition of the World Open in 2019 and he repeated that success in emphatic style to claim his 28th ranking title.

It's a tally that moves him level with Steve Davis and only Ronnie O'Sullivan, Stephen Hendry and John Higgins have won more in their career.

2019 was also the year that Trump won his maiden World Championship and the Bristolian will be heading to the Crucible in fine fettle, having won five tournaments so far this season.

To Win Outright

Success for Trump in Yushan will have no doubt aided his confidence, but it was the manner of his World Open triumph that will make rivals fearful.

Despite encountering a partisan crowd in Junhui's favour, the world number two stamped his authority on the contest and was in delightful form, knocking in breaks of 88, 79 and 78 on the way to opening up a 7-2 lead at the end of the first session.

The first century of the match went the way of Junhui but Trump responded in spectacular fashion, delivering a superb 130 break.

Whatever the home favourite mustered, Trump had an answer and he rounded off the match with a 106 and 85 to clinch victory.

“The magnificent seven is on!” Trump smiled after his World Open success. “I’ve put myself in an amazing position this season. I’ve now got a mindset where I want to win and I don’t punish myself when I miss easy balls like a lot of other players do.

“It’s taken me a long time to get to this headspace, but it’s working really well for me.

“This season’s been so good that if I didn’t win another game it’s been an amazing season. But I want to keep winning with a couple of big events left.”

O'Sullivan remains the 5/2 favourite to claim a record-breaking eighth world title at the Crucible in April.

The Rocket crashed out of the World Open in the fourth round to old foe Hossein Vafaei, with the Iranian pipping O'Sullivan in a 5-4 thriller.
