Stephen Maguire had two century breaks, making 122 and 108, on his way to a 4-1 win over Xiao Guodong, while a 110 highlighted Mark Selby's 4-1 win over Michael Holt.

Liang Wenbo won the final two frames to seal a 4-3 win over Mark Allen.

Neil Robertson and Matthew Selt enjoyed 4-0 routs in their wins over Luca Brecel and Barry Hawkins respectively, while there were also wins for Martin Gould and Stuart Bingham.
