Some hugely familiar names from the world of snooker have made it through to the qualifying rounds of the World Championship at the Crucible in Sheffield over the next few days. These include; Jack Lisowski, Stuart Bingham, Stephen Maguire and Ricky Walden who all won their matches yesterday in some style.

Jack Lisowski completed a 10-3 win over two-time World Championship finalist Matthew Stevens to book his trip to the final stage of this year’s Crucible event.

In other matches, former UK champion Stephen Maguire enjoyed a 10-6 victory over Yuan Sijun, while evergreen 52-year-old Welshman Dominic Dale emerged a 10-8 winner against He Guoqiang to become the oldest player to qualify since six-time world champion Steve Davis managed the feat at the same age in 2010.

Ricky Walden beat Mark Davis 10-9 having trailed 5-2 and 9-8 despite Davis producing two century breaks. Jak Jones replicated the brilliance that saw him reach the quarter-finals on his debut campaign last season with a 10-4 success against Zhou Yuelong that saw the Welshman produce a century, six breaks over 70 and two over 50.
