    Blew him away, would be brilliant to see Trump in that form against the best Ronnie.

    Trump would have beaten anybody this final. Ronnie May never win another World title and to be honest John would have probably beaten anybody else including Ronnie.
    Anyway he stuffed the Rocket in the Masters final and now massacred Higgins.

    It's been a great tournament, very high quality, Judd is a deserving winner.

    He said Ronnie at his best though. O'Sullivan at his best is every bit as unplayable as Trump was, if not even more so

    Isn’t as simple as that, peak O’Sullivan is capable of a 147 in 5 minutes. That’s as close to perfection as anyone has ever gotten.

    Don’t think he has that level of focus anymore but it would be amazing to see if he were to get back on the horse properly.

    Trump played to a level that's right up there with O sullivan and Hendry at their very best, it was almost robotic snooker.

    Anyone been watching this UK Championship? Bingtao has been outstanding, as has Ding. Should be an absolute cracker tomorrow. Bingtao will certainly win a world title in his career. Amazing he's only 19.

    Haven't watched snooker properly in well over a year, sadly.

    This will give Ding massive confidence in his career,a much needed boost. He now has a real chance at the World’s next year.
