Judd Trump is an English professional snooker player from Bristol who is the reigning World Champion and the current world number one. His career total of 17 ranking titles puts him in joint seventh place on the all-time list. Trump turned professional in 2005, aged 16, and captured his first ranking title at the 2011 China Open, defeating Selby 10–8 in the final. The following month, he reached the final of the 2011 World Championship, but lost 15–18 to John Higgins. He claimed his first Triple Crown title later that year when he won the 2011 UK Championship, defeating Mark Allen 10–8 in the final. By the end of the 2017–18 snooker season, Trump had won a total of eight ranking titles, although many believed that he had underachieved, given his talent.
