World number one Judd Trump beat Yan Bingtao 10-4 in the final of the Coral Players Championship in Southport to claim a record-equalling fifth ranking event of the season.
Trump is only the fifth player after Stephen Hendry, Ding Junhui, Mark Selby and Ronnie O'Sullivan to reach the milestone after previous victories in the International Championship, World Open, Northern Ireland Open and the German Masters.
The world champion stole the opening frame on the black after needing a snooker to tie, Yan leaving a free ball on the final red after earlier making a break of 70.
A break of 55 helped Yan get back on level terms but runs of 75, 122, 50 and 75 saw Trump win five frames in succession before Yan stopped the rot with a break of 95 to trail 6-2 heading into the evening session.
When play resumed 20-year-old Yan kept his hopes alive by claiming the first two frames, but Trump responded with breaks of 108, 68 and 60 to secure the title and the first prize of £125,000.
At the presentation ceremony broadcast on ITV4, Trump said: "It's amazing to win another event and pick up my fifth ranking title and equal some of the greats.
"I'm very proud. It's been an amazing last two years for me, winning a lot of trophies, and just to keep winning is very exciting.
"It's been a fantastic week here, I didn't really know what to expect when you come to a new venue but the crowds have been fantastic.
"He (Yan) put me under a lot of pressure, his all-round game is so good for his age so I think in the future he's going to win a lot more events and he's already doing better than I was at his age. He's one to look out for."
