·1-min read

Judd Trump has booked his place in the semi-finals of the Champion of Champions snooker tournament with a dominant display against David Gilbert.

The world No.1 equalled the record for the most centuries in a best-of-11 match, hitting five in his 6-3 win.

Trump opened with a 103 break, but Gilbert rallied to take the next two frames of the group final at Milton Keynes.

The 31-year-old took the next three frames, before sealing the match with breaks of 107 and 138 to join Australian defending champion Neil Robertson at the semi-final stage.

Earlier, Trump breezed past Stuart Bingham with a 4-0 win to set up his clash with Gilbert, who held off a fightback to beat Shaun Murphy 4-2.

World Nos. four and five Mark Selby and Kyren Wilson will compete in Group 3 on Wednesday, alongside Stephen Maguire and Luca Brecel.
