The expected fireworks between Ronnie O'Sullivan and Peter Ebdon never materialized - perhaps Health & Safety sent them a memo? Ronnie won comfortably by 10-4 and could face Mark Williams in the next round.
Also through is Andrew Higginson who beat Stephen Lee 10-6.
Andrew Higginson is not from Finland, therefore he is not the son of John (or Alex) Higgins.
Former champ Shaun Murphy was beaten 10-8 by young welshman Jamie Jones - i thought he was the Leyton Orient goalkeeper?
Orient could do with a win like this at the moment.
Also through is Matthew Steven who beat Marco Fu 10-3. Bit of a hammering. I imagine Fu was saying a few words to himself that started with the same letters...
