Cao Kaisheng, who upset Stephen Maguire on Tuesday, continued his good run to defeat Cao Xin Long and set up a last 16 clash with Ben Woollaston, who was a 4-0 winner over Pan Weixing.

Marco Fu was the day's most surprising loser, as he went down 4-1 to Tian Pengfei, who faces Mei Xi Wen in the next round.

Mark Williams will face Michael White in the last 16 after squeaking past Cai Jianzhong 4-3. White beat Lu Ning by the same scoreline.
