Judd Trump was the last man standing at the Paul Hunter Classic in Furth, winning the title with a 4-3 defeat of Anthony Hamilton tonight.
Trump, 21 last week, has thus taken a significant step towards qualifying for the grand finals next March.
Having started playing at the age of five, it feels like Judd has been around a long time but he is still a young man and this victory is proof of his considerable talent.
He has risen in the rankings every year he's been on the tour but not at the rapid rate many predicted. However, Trump himself never made any predictions. He has just done what he's always done: played snooker.
If he can curb his natural attacking tendencies and play the percentages more I've no doubt he will be successful in the major events.
I know Ronnie O'Sullivan, who has practised with him at The Grove in Romford, rates him very highly.
And I'd imagine Barry Hearn will be pleased to see this young prospect doing well under his new regime.
Also, well done to Anthony Hamilton - one of the nicest guys on the circuit - for reaching the final after a few lean years.
I understand this now established and popular tournament was very well attended again and no doubt the crowds were cheered by the two oldest players on the tour - Steve Davis and Jimmy White - reaching the quarter-finals.
