|Jamie Jones comes back for victory|
A perfect opportunity for the youngster Jamie Jones to prove he means serious business and beat the current world champion John Higgins in the deciding frame after being lead 3-1.
China's Ding Junhui started his "Irish journey" with a 4-2 obtained in front of the PTC 3 champion Ben Woollaston, Big Bear Stephen Lee continued his great run by knocking down Michael Holt 4-1, the "Thunder from Down Under", though not at his best, managed to electrocute Jack Lisowski 4-1, while Joe Perry made another victim on the green baize in the person of Scotland’s Graeme Dott, defeated by 4-2.
|Higgins still stuggling to find some form|
The cue battle had a pretty nervy start, which was only normal considering that Higgins needed to impose him game, while Jones had one of his not-so-often apparitions in front of a large crowd.
First two frames were shared, Higgins taking the first and Jamie winning the second with a top break of 78, but soon after that it was a one-way-Scottish-affair.
|Ding Junhui fighting|
After winning the Welsh Open on February 19, Ding Junhui had to perform in his home country during the Haikou World Open. And things didn’t go very well, the "Chinese Sensation" experiencing an early exit right from the first round.
|Woollaston was overshadowed by the Chinese player|
Minutes later the Chinese player was crossing the finish line with a great 98 that was seeing the scoreboard freezing at 4-2. Tomorrow, Ding is meeting with an old buddy of his, the man he beat in the Welsh Open final, Mark Selby. Will he Leicester man take revenge, or will Ding repeat the history?
After Woollaston's defeat another PTC champion was going to "retire" from the tournament, Michael Holt being hammered 4-1 by a fearless Stephen Lee.
|Not at his best, but a win is a win for Robbo|
Neil Robertson met the 20-year-old lad Jack Lisowski in the forth match of the day and although the Aussie was far from his best he did manage to win the battle of cues and book himself a place in the quarter-finals after using breaks of 43, 43, 32, 30 and 53.
If last night Joe Perry was sending home the Irishman Fergal O'Brien, tonight was the turn of a Scottish player, also known under the name of Graeme Dott.
|"The Genlteman" of snooker makes another victim|
84 points later, the Pink Army soldier was back in front, but Dotty didn't lose his grip and fought like a genuine terrier to catch up with his opponent at 2-2.
The pattern was re-installed when Perry won the next frame with a top break of 67, with the only difference that Dott wasn't able to level the match this time, the Englishman using runs of 46 and 20 for a 4-2 victory.
