Tournament summary


Judd Trump won the event, retaining the trophy after a 9–7 win in the final.

The first four rounds were played from 11 to 14 November as the best of seven frames. Defending champion Trump defeated James Cahill in the opening round, then beat three Chinese players Zhang Anda, Si Jiahui and Yan Bingtao, whilst unseeded player Anthony Hamilton defeated Tom Ford, Rod Lawler and eighth seed Kyren Wilson to reach the quarter-finals.[8] Fifth seed Mark Selby defeated Xu Si, Matthew Stevens, Luca Brecel and Ken Doherty in qualifying for the quarter-finals where he would meet John Higgins as he defeated Chang Bingyu, Kacper Filipiak, Billy Joe Castle, and 2019 World Cup partner Stephen Maguire.[8][12] Fourteenth seed Joe Perry defeated Zhao Xintong, Ross Bulman, Graeme Dott and Robbie Williams to play Alexander Ursenbacher in the quarter-finals, who overcame Xiao Guodong and Martin O'Donnell in the opening two rounds.[8] In the third round, he met Stuart Bingham, who made the highest break of the event, a maximum break of 147 in the first frame of his opening round win over Lu Ning, the sixth of Bingham's career.[13] Ursenbacher defeated Bingham 4–2, and then sixth seed Mark Allen 4–3.[14] Seventh seed Shaun Murphy overcame Fraser Patrick, Luo Honghao, Ricky Walden and Barry Hawkins to meet Ronnie O'Sullivan, who defeated Oliver Lines, Lei Peifan, Stuart Carrington and Yuan Sijun.[8][14]

The quarter-finals were played on 15 November as the best of nine frames.[8] Trump defeated Hamilton 5–1, the same scoreline that O'Sullivan defeated Muprhy, whilst Perry defeated Ursenbacher 5–3.[15][8] Higgins led Selby 4–2, but led 66–0 in frame seven. Selby, however, took more than six minutes to take a single shot, more time than the fastest ever maximum break.[12] Selby won the frame, and tied the match at 4–4, but Higgins won the deciding frame to win 5–4.[12] The semi-finals were played as the best of 11 frames on 16 November.[8] Higgins led Trump at 3–2 in the first, but Trump won the next four frames to progress to the final.[16] A pot on the black ball by Trump in frame eight where he played the cue ball around the table to make a cannon was described by fellow players such as Jimmy White, Mark Allen and opponent Higgins as "one of the best shots ever played".[17] The second semi-final was held between O'Sullivan and Perry. O'Sullivan won all of the first five frames, before winning the match 6–1.[18]

The final was played between Trump and O'Sullivan on 17 November as the best of 17 frames, held over two sessions.[8] Trump won the opening two frames, and led 3–1 after a break of 123 in the fourth.[19] He also led 5–3 after the opening session, despite missing an attempt for a maximum break in frame seven.[19] Upon the restart, O'Sullivan won frame nine, before Trump opened up a three frame lead by winning the next two. O'Sullivan won two frames in a row, to trail by a frame, but Trump made a break of 124 to lead 8–6. Making his second century break of the final, a 135, O'Sullivan won frame 15, but Trump made a break of 84 to win the match 9–7.[19][20]

The win was Trump's 14th ranking event victory.[1] After the match, Trump commented: "To defend any title is always difficult but to do it against Ronnie [O'Sullivan] is extra special...You've got to play [your best] against Ronnie otherwise you lose."[19] O'Sullivan praised his opponent after the match, commenting that he "enjoyed watching" Trump's play.[1] The pair would also contest the following season's event, with Trump again winning over O'Sullivan by the same scoreline.[21]
