Gary Wilson has been impressive hitting 8 centuries including a 147.
While I am absolutely gutted for Holty. Should have won the 18th frame and had chances in the decider. He will be gutted.

Fascinating games wherever you look this year!
Ronnie has his work cut out against Gary Wilson who hit 8 centuries including a 147 in qualifying.
Intriguing all chinese clash of Ding v Zhou - the master v the apprentice.
Can see Bingtao causes a huge shock against Murphy who has been out of sorts.
Judd will have to be patient against Rory McBoring.
And there is a couple of juicy classics there too in Bingham/Ebdon and Carter/Dott and Higgins/Gould.
Yeah Bingham is decent player tbf, the type of player who will just play the percentage shots and not play anything out of the ordinary which is why he won the worlds a couple of years ago.
Would have preferred Ronnie or Judd (especially Judd) as he's got every shot in the locker like his incredible cue power, being able to deep screw 2 lengths of the table and the way he just slams the balls in pocket up the cushion is what i love to see.
Nah i can only see the 1 table from im sitting would have been nice to see them both. I know they take the barrier wall down when 1 session is over but i can't see Bingham v Ebdon finishing before Ronnie with how fast he mops em up.
