Not only is Trump the current world number one and red hot favourite for this match, he has head to head form as well.

Trump has won all five previous matches against Bingtao.

The most recent of those was at the 2020 Players Championship in the Final.

It was a breeze for Trump who collected a 10-4 victory there and it may be worth stretching to a -4.5 handicap on Trump at 4/5* (odds taken 23:35 GMT, Tuesday 4th August).


Yan Bingtao Preview – Can Bingtao cause an upset?

This is a massive challenge for Yan Bingtao, who is the 16th seed for this tournament.

Bingtao was up against Elliot Slessor in the opening round of the 2020 World Championships.

It was a 10-7 victory that Bingtao posted to make it through to the second round.

Bingtao opened the season in great form collecting the tile at the Riga Masters, the ranking season opener.

He has actually upped his game over the second half of the season which could make this an interesting match.

Bingtao reached the final of the Players Championship where he lost to Trump.

Then he made a run to the Tour Championship, the final ranking tournament before the World Championships.
