|Great Crucible debut for Jones|
It's his first appearance here at the Crucible, but he's proved to have worth it. Jamie Jones performed in a spectacular way to win his first round match of his first World Championship and get a place next to the best players, in the Last 16 round.
The first session of the match was very balanced, the lads taking turn on who wins the next frame, the partial result showing Murphy with a slight advantage of 5-4.
At returning into the arena for the final session, the Englishman extended his lead with a bit of help from a 73 break, only to see Jones pulling on back right after it.
|Murphy has been sent to pack his bags|
Gutted, but still eager to win this snooker encounter Murphy managed to pull back a frame with runs of 46 and 28, but it was useless: Jamie was cruising towards victory with series of 24 and 26.
The Welshman lifted his fist and punched the air as the frame ball was entering the pocket happy to have made a success out of his first Crucible appearance.
Back on table number two, although not in his best form, but still rocking, Ronnie O'Sullivan took a comfortable 7-2 lead over Peter Ebdon.
