Trump settled his nerves with a break of 76 in the next and reduced the deficit to 7-6 after Robertson failed to punish him for missing a simple blue off its spot.
Robertson missed a golden chance to move one frame from victory when he broke down on a break of 65 in the next, a missed red to the middle letting in Trump to win his third frame in a row and level the scores.
It was Trump himself who went one from victory but a poor break-off in the next was all it took for Robertson to rattle his third century of the match, a 125 total clearance, to force the decider.

After responding by wrapping up his victory in one visit, Trump said he was happy with his game which also took him to the semi-finals of last month's European Masters.
"I have had a few question marks over my form but it's a little bit harsh expecting fireworks every time I play," added Trump.
"That doesn't happen. But I'm happy with how I'm playing and how I am able to dig in when I need to."
