Robbo - Defending champion
Gould - PTC finalist
Dott - 3 time finalist and former WC. He was playing great snooker
Ding - Masters champion and playing at the top of his game
Higgins - Currently the best player in the World
Given that Trump was not really established before these championships that draw rivals Hendry's 99 run. Hendry might have had a slightly more difficult path but on the other hand he was already established and a 6 time World Champion at the time.
Good luck Judd, snookers new star.
