- Six-time world champion takes 12-5 lead at Crucible
- O’Sullivan was earlier involved in flashpoint with referee
When Ronnie O’Sullivan is in the mood and the stakes are so high, being close to perfect on the baize is the minimum you can muster if you wish to stand a chance. How Judd Trump found that out here to devastating effect as his self-confessed dream final slowly turned into somewhat of a nightmare.
It was a peculiar opening day in the final of this year’s World Snooker Championship, to say the least. At the midway point, O’Sullivan held a 5-3 lead over Trump but the Bristolian had won the final two frames of an absorbing afternoon session and O’Sullivan had become embroiled in a fascinating moment of controversy.
