Judd Trump through to last eight in Shanghai Masters
JUDD Trump moved a step closer winning this year's Shanghai Masters with another impressive win yesterday.
Having fought back from 3-0 down to beat Barry Hawkins 5-3 in the first round on Wednesday, UK Championship winner Trump again left himself with work to do as he slipped 2-0 down to Ulsterman Mark Allen yesterday.
But world No 2 Trump raised his game and won the next five frames to claim a fine 5-2 victory.
Breaks of 108 and 57 did some of the damage as Trump outplayed Allen to set up a quarter-final showdown with Scotland's Graeme Dott, the former world champion, today.

"I want to get to No 1 in the world this season, hopefully before Christmas," said Trump.
"I'm not playing great, but I'm hanging in there and no one else has really stepped up.
"(World No 1) Mark Selby went out in the first round here, so it's a chance to gain a lot of ground if I can win it. I haven't played well, but I'm still in the tournament. My long potting is not good, but my safety is decent and I'm making it hard for my opponent."
