And it didn't take Trump long to finish the job, taking the final two frames to cruise to victory in emphatic fashion, ending proceedings with a break of 115 - his highest of an excellent individual performance.
Earlier on Tuesday, world champion Mark Williams was at his fizzing best as he beat Ali Carter 6-2. The Welshman produced two big breaks, one of 118 and another of 131, en-route to an impressive win.
Williams' entertaining style was on full display as the Welsh Potting Machine finished with a shot time of just 19 seconds across the eight-frame encounter.
Neil Robertson also picked up a win on Tuesday, beating Joe Perry 6-3. The pair alternated frame wins to make it 2-2, but breaks of 107 and 101 saw Robertson take control as he turned on the class after the interval to win the best-of-11 match with two frames to spare.
And in the final match of the evening, Jack Lisowksi survived a Kyren Wilson fightback to win 6-4.
