World No 2 Judd Trump survived a huge scare to seal his spot in the quarter-finals of the Betfair Masters today with a nail-biting 6-5 victory over Barry Hawkins, claiming the win with a superb century.

Trump, tipped for the title this year, looked destined for an early exit after Hawkins rattled off three successive frames from 3-2 down to leave himself within sight of the win.

However, Trump battled back and made no mistake in the final frame as he fired off a break of 107 to claim the win and set up a quarter-final meeting with Graeme Dott.
