- Trump was victorious in the penultimate event of the 2015/16 season, the China Open. He reached the final thanks to a 6-0 demolition of Stephen Maguire in the last four. Trump clinched the win with a clinical performance against Ricky Walden. A superb blitz from 2-3 down to 9-3 ahead was good enough to see Trump over the line, to claim his second China Open title with a 10-4 win.
- He reached the final of the 2015 Shanghai Masters, beating the likes of Mark Williams and Stuart Bingham, before being edged out 10-9 in a tense match with first-time ranking winner Kyren Wilson.
- Trump enjoyed a successful 2014/15 season winning two ranking events. He claimed the fourth of his career at the 2014 Australian Open, beating home favourite Neil Robertson 9-5 in the final.
- He went on to make the finals of the Champion of Champions and the UK Championship, but both times was denied the trophy at the hands of Ronnie O’Sullivan, by scorelines of 10-7 and 10-9.
- However, Trump gained revenge on the ‘Rocket’ at the World Grand Prix in Llandudno, coming from 7-4 down in the final to win 10-7 and take home the £100,000 top prize.
- At the 2015 World Championship, Trump scored an impressive 13-4 win over Ding Junhui on his way to the semi-finals. He was denied a spot in the final by Stuart Bingham after an epic 17-16 defeat.
- In 2012, Trump was the first winner of the International Championship in Chengdu, China. He came from 8-6 down in the final to beat Neil Robertson 10-8 and land the £125,000 top prize. That gave him a brief spell at the top of the world rankings.
- A year earlier Trump won the UK Championship in York with a fantastic brand of attacking snooker. He held off a tenacious Mark Allen to win 10-8 in a high quality final.
- He also produced a magnificent display to go all the way to the final of the 2011 World Championship, beating defending champion Neil Robertson, Martin Gould, Graeme Dott and Ding Junhui, to set up a classic final against John Higgins. He led 12-9, but in the end Higgins proved too strong, winning 18-15 and leaving Trump to wonder what might have been.
- In 2004, aged 14 years and 208 days, he became the youngest player to make a competitive 147 break, beating the record set by Ronnie O’Sullivan in 1991.
