Judd Trump defends his Northern Ireland Open title

Judd Trump beat Ronnie O’Sullivan by 9-7 to retain his Northern Ireland Open title. It was a match of the highest quality, and a repeat of the previous year final. By winning this title, Judd accomplished something that hadn’t be done since Stephen Hendry in 1990/91, winning three ranking events as a first time World Champion, and, of course, there could be more to come. This victory further consolidates Judd’s status as the current dominant figure in snooker: he’s World Champion, World number one and miles ahead of everyone else …

Luca Brecel was the only Grove player at the 2019 Paul Hunter Classic in Fürth. The tournament that once was the biggest pro-am in Europe, attracting well over 200 players, pros and amateurs, is now reduced to a 16 men invitational, with very poor prize money. The tournament was well supported by the fans but wasn’t on television, nor was it streamed. It was won by Barry Hawkins. Luca reached the semi-finals, where he lost to Kyren Wilson. All the players involved deserve praise for turning up to hounour …
