Stuart Bingham beat Judd Trump in the final of last month’s Welsh Open

Former world champion Stuart Bingham faces a disciplinary hearing after it was found he has “a case to answer” in relation to betting on snooker.

Bingham admitted to breaking World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association (WPBSA) rules on betting on matches involving other players.

The world number three is now awaiting the conclusion of the investigation before he discovers his penalty.

“This was just a case of me not being clear on the rules,” said Bingham.
