Defending champion Shaun Murphy and world primary Judd Trump have reached the Welsh Open second spherical.
Murphy beat fellow Englishman Zak Surety 4-1 whereas Trump noticed off China’s Zhao Jianbo 4-2 in spherical one.
They had been joined by Mark Selby, who beat Barry Pinches 4-1 whereas Zhao’s fellow countryman Ding Junhui earlier earned a 4-1 win over compatriot Lyu Haotian.
There was excellent news for the host nation as Jamie Jones received his first match.
Jones beat China’s Yuan Sijun 4-1 in Monday’s night session whereas compatriot Lee Walker misplaced his first-round match 4-1 to England’s Mark Davis.
Nevertheless, one other Welshman, Jak Jones, got here again from 3-Zero all the way down to beat China’s Fan Zhengyi 4-3.
A minute’s silence was held for Welsh snooker legend Doug Mountjoy earlier than play began.
