World number four Judd Trump retained the European Masters title with a 9-7 win over Stuart Bingham in Belgium.
Former world champion Bingham stroked in back to back centuries to build a 4-2 lead but Trump levelled at 4-4 at the end of the first session.Bingham beat Trump 9-8 in the Welsh Open final in February and a break of 130, his third century of the match, gave him a 5-4 advantage.
Trump levelled with a 107 and then added a 66 to take the lead for the first time at 6-5, swiftly building a two-frame cushion courtesy of a fluked snooker in the next. Trump, 28, moved ahead again and the Man from Bristol sealed his eighth ranking title with a superb break of 107.
It is the first time Trump has successfully defended a ranking title and he admitted: "It took me a few games to get used to it out there, I haven't played in many tournaments so far this season so I felt I wasn't match sharp in the first few games.
