Jak Jones has landed the biggest win of his career by stunning Judd Trump 13-9 at the Crucible to reach the World Snooker Championship semi-finals for the first time.

Trump arrived in Sheffield as second favourite to lift the trophy after a superb season which saw him win five ranking titles, but suffered a nightmare three sessions against the Welshman.

The world number two knocked in a century in the very first frame but it was all a bit of a struggle from there on in.

With the Ace failing to find his best stuff, the steady and solid Jones won a lot of close frames but also showed off his scoring, with breaks of 117, 94, 87, 74, 69, 61, 55 and 51 before a seemingly nerveless, and stunning, break of 106 in the final frame to get over the line.

The world number 44 now gets his first experience of the one-table set-up at the Crucible against either Ronnie O’Sullivan or Stuart Bingham.

The 30-year-old is proving again that he is incredibly well suited for the World Championship stage after reaching the quarter-finals on debut last year.

He has gone one better this time around and could go still further, full of confidence after beating the 2019 world champion in the last eight.
