Judd Trump took the inaugural International Championship title by beating Neil Robertson 10-8 in today's final in Chengdu. The 22-year-old Bristolian, who became world No 1 with his semi-final hammering of Peter Ebdon, earned the £125,000 first prize by delivering under pressure .

A tight match seemed to have swung Robertson's way when he led 8-6 but his rival left-hander found another gear and produced breaks of 96 and 119.

It was Trump's third ranking title, having won the China Open and the UK Championship last year, while for Robertson it was only a second defeat in 12 ranking finals.
