Trump holds all the aces

The “Ace in the pack” Judd Trump has one hand on the world championship trophy as he leads John Higgins 12-5 after a masterful display of potting and break building over the first 2 sessions of the final. The standard of this match has been exceptional so far with 7 centuries and 6 other contributions of 50 plus between the two player’s but it’s judd who is in the firm ascendancy and its going to take a herculean effort from John Higgins to turn this round. 

Higgins yesterday complained about the quick turn around of the semi final ending and the final beginning and he also mentioned the limited time between session’s as a real problem and he seemed quite fatigued during large parts of the second session. It’s hard to write off a man of Higgins’s class but us at can’t see him turning this around as Judd is scoring so heavy at every opportunity and Higgins’s doesn’t look like he can reel frames of in quick succession but tomorrow’s session’s will reveal all.
