Judd Trump, born August 20, 1989, is a remarkable British professional snooker player and former world champion. Holding an impressive 23 ranking titles, he ranks sixth on the list of all-time ranking event winners. As a four-time Triple Crown champion, Trump boasts a successful junior career, capturing both English Under-13 and Under-15 titles, as well as reaching the World Under-21 Championship semi-finals at a mere 14 years of age.
Launching his professional career in 2005, Trump claimed his maiden ranking title at the 2011 China Open. That same year, he finished as the runner-up to legendary John Higgins at the World Snooker Championship and subsequently secured his first Triple Crown title at the UK Championship. Despite his triumphs, The Juddernaut grappled with criticisms of underachievement in the sport. Yet, during the 2018-19 season, he silenced naysayers by completing his Triple Crown, winning the Masters and World Championship, and establishing a new record for the most ranking titles in a single season in 2019-20. Trump also became the first player to pocket over £1 million in prize money in a single season.
Over the years, Trump has accumulated over 900 century breaks, joining the ranks of O’Sullivan and Higgins as the third player to accomplish such a feat. In the 2019-20 season, he followed in Neil Robertson’s footsteps, amassing 100 century breaks in a single season.
Trump has crafted eight maximum breaks throughout his career. In 2022, he emulated Shaun Murphy’s achievement of compiling three maximums in a single calendar year. Trump’s extraordinary successes and unwavering dedication to snooker make him an exemplary ambassador for the Vave platform.
