Judd Trump makes 'most difficult pot ever seen on a snooker table' in German Masters win

Judd Trump produced one of the best pots of his career in the German Masters match against Si Jiahui.

Judd Trump has become synonymous for pulling off some of snooker's most audacious pots but even by his standards, this effort from Sunday's BetVictor German Masters final is outrageous.

The 34-year-old world number two, from Bristol, secured a fourth ranking title of the season at the weekend after beating China' Si Jiahui 10-5 at the Tempodrom in Berlin.

But it was a shot in the third frame of Sunday's contest that got people talking online. As you can see from the footage below, the red Trump decided to pot was pinned against the cushion.

Then, to the surprise of many, he managed to find the far right pocket with an audacious effort that travelled up the rail.

Check it out below:

Here's how fans on social media reacted to the pot.

One said: "This is possibly the single most difficult pot I've ever seen on a snooker table," while another commented: "What an absolutely ridiculous pot."

A third wrote: "This is the almost in 'almost impossible'. Shout out to the table fitters, too."

A fourth said: "That's insane," and a fifth added: "The sort of shot you could only do on World Championship Snooker 2002."

Trump, who earned £80,000 in prize money after securing this year's German Masters title, opened up about his season following Sunday's win over Si Jiahui.

"It's been an amazing season so far," he said. "I think I've reached seven finals, six ranking finals, and this is my fourth win.

"Every tournament is special, but when you get to play in front of a crowd like this, and lift the trophy, they are the kinds of moments you remember at the end of your career."

Trump also praised Si Jiahui, saying: “I think he is very promising. The form he showed in the World Championship and this event, he is certainly the most talented player out there and the most likely to get to the top of the game.

"Shot selection is the key for him, the same as when I was young. As soon as he realises that and knuckles down he will challenge for a lot of titles."
