Judd Trump claimed his second ranking title of the season with a 10-5 win over Thepchaiya Un-Nooh in the World Open final in China.

The world champion held off a mini-fightback from the Thai to clinch victory with breaks of 136 and 61 in the final two frames in Yushan.

Trump, who is the current world number one, did most of the damage in the first session as he opened up a 7-2 lead on the back of runs of 58, 96, 78, 90, 85 and 68.

He was also gifted a frame when Thepchaiya was forced to forfeit after failing three times to hit a red despite being able to see one - a rule so rarely enforced and which summed up his start to the match.

It could have been even worse for Thepchaiya had the world number 37 not fluked a re-spotted black to take the ninth frame.

Trump moved within two of victory after a break of 64 at the start of the season session but Thepchaiya fought back by reeling off three in a row to make a game of it.

Trump was not to be denied, however, and eased to his 13th ranking title in convincing style.
