Before we get into them though, we had final throws of round one to deal with,as Neil Robertson & Barry Hawkins looked finish off the job against Saengkham & Ford respectively.
Starting the day with an 8-1 lead Robertson was never likely to be in trouble here despite the Thai putting a bit more shine on the scoreboard & the 2010 champion set up a last 16 clash with Marco Fu winning in the end 10-4
Hawkins also enjoyed a healthy 7-2 overnight lead against \Tom Ford and like Robertson, he didn't need to break sweat tonight running out in the end a 10-3 winner.
In the round two matches that got underway today Kyren Wilson holds a 5-3 overnight lead against Bingham,but its the 2015 champion who'll probably be slightly the happier as things stand having trailed here at one stage 5-0.In honesty the standard wasn't the best at times and both players will be looking to improve when they resume in the morning.
Standard of play certainly wasn't an issue in the other last 16 match that commenced today and its a highly focused & motivated looking Ronnie O'Sullivan who holds a deserved 6-2 lead over Shaun Murphy.
This really was Ronnie at his fluent best and although Murphy produced a nice break of his own to level at 1-1, the session was dominated by O'Sullivan, who if he can produce the same level of performance tomorrow,will slightly fancy his chances of finishing this with a session to spare. Murphy may have other ideas though!!
Heres what we can look forward to tomorrow
