Zhang didn’t manage to qualify for the knockout stage. Judd and Stuart were unfortunate to draw each other in the last 32 and it’s Judd who prevailed. Judd then reached the semi finals where he lost to Shaun Murphy.

Last 32 (5th of July, 2012)
Judd Trump 6-4 Stuart Bingham

Last 16 (5th of July, 2012)
Judd Trump 6-1 Hossein Vafaei Ayouri
An interesting match as the score isn’t telling the whole story. The young Iranian amateur World Champion, only 17 years old, showed that he can play and we will see more of him. Judd of course is the World n°2 and he played well. Also his experience, in professional competition AND in playing on television, helped him massively. But Hossein certainly didn’t disgrace himself. He’s one to watch.

Quarter finals (6th of July, 2012)
Mark Selby 5-7 Judd Trump
Judd beat Mark Selby from 0-2 down, making another maximum (75) in the process. But all accounts this was an excellent match with most frames won in one telling visit.

Semi Finals (6th of July, 2012)
Judd Trump 2-7 Shaun Murphy
After a good win against Mark Selby earlier on the day, Judd looked completely flat and out of sorts in the semi finals. He didn’t pot a ball in any of the seven frames that Shaun won and only got his first one on the board with the help of a massive fluke. To Shaun’s credit, he played very well and fluently but Judd couldn’t put him under any sort of pressure.
