Six former fi­nal­ists and a brash 14-year-old who has de­scribed Judd Trump’s tech­nique as “clumsy” are among the 128 play­ers who will be­gin the quest to reach this year’s World Snooker Cham­pi­onship to­day. Ukrainian Iu­lian Boiko, who will be­come the youngest ever player in the qual­i­fiers, has al­ready se­cured a two-year tour card. Last month Boiko praised reign­ing cham­pion Trump, but added: “I like the way Trump plays, I like his style of play, but the tech­nique it­self is quite clumsy.”
