Robertson Beats Trump In Dramatic Champions Of Champions Final

Robertson Beats Trump In Dramatic Champions Of Champions Final

Neil Robertson won a dramatic Champions of Champions tournament in Coventry on Sunday night.

The Aussie defeated Judd Trump 10-9.

With Trump leading 9-8 and well up in the 18th frame, it appeared that it was the Englishman who was heading for victory.

However, Trump hit the jaw of the middle right pocket with a red. Still, at that point, with Trump leading 69-6, Robertson required a snooker if he was to get back into the match.

The 37-year-old got that snooker and the remaining points on the table to finish the frame level with Trump.

A respotted black was required with Robertson eventually potting after three minutes of exchanges to claim the frame and level the match at 9-9.

The final frame was all about Robertson. He hit break of 137 to claim the £150,000 prize.

"I can't believe we've played a match like that," Robertson said afterwards.

"It's the best match I've ever been involved with. It had everything."
