Two-time former winner Mark Williams claimed he will be the man the world's elite players will want to avoid in Wednesday's World Championship draw.
The 33-year-old Welshman guaranteed himself a first-round berth with a 10-5 victory over Leicestershire cueman Tom Ford.
Williams said: "I think possibly I'm the one they'll want to miss."
Ken Doherty, required to qualify for the first time in 16 years, faces Kent-based Northern Ireland ace Gerard Greene today.
