Trump well on top in Thailand

Judd Trump continued his good form by easing to a 4-0 victory over up-and-coming Belgium cueman Luca Brecel in the first round of the Players Championship in Thailand.

Trump, who defeated Ronnie O'Sullivan to win the World Grand Prix last Sunday before travelling to Bangkok, reached the last 16 with a top break of 71.

"I played well and Luca didn't, so in the end it was convincing," Trump said. "I need to play better next time."

Shaun Murphy reeled off three frames in a row after going 1-0 down on his way to a 4-2 victory over Rod Lawler which included top breaks of 93 and 69.

World champion Mark Selby chalked up a 4-0 win over Dominic Dale while Martin Gould defeated Michael White 4-3.
