    O'Sullivan - Ding to end 9-0.

    Not quite sure who will win though.

    Seeing as it's first to 10, which will walk out in a huff?!

    Dott's been dire today. Better 16th frame though. Needs to win the next 3...

    Davis joins Dott in the ranks of knocked out players - managed to blow it against John Parrott, despite coming back from 6-9 to 9-9.

    *checks calendar. Nope, not 1989...*

    Looks for the world like an O'Sullivan/Higgins - Stevens/Murphy final now.

    Selby by all accounts played magnificently to beat Ebdon. 95% pot success. Wouldn't count him out in a semi v Stevens.

    The Masters started yesterday, and earlier today Neil Robertson, who became the first Australian to win a ranking tournament at the Grand Prix in October, demolished two time world champion Mark Williams 6-0.

    The draw and results so far look like:

    Wildcard round:

    Ali Carter beat Stuart Bingham 6-5
    Ding Junhui beat Anthony Hamilton 6-3
    Matthew Stevens beat Jimmy White 6-1

    Round 1:

    Neil Robertson beat Mark Williams 6-0
    John Higgins v Stephen Maguire
    Ken Doherty v Barry Hawkins
    Graeme Dott v Stephen Lee
    Ronnie O'Sullivan v Ali Carter
    Peter Ebdon v Ding Junhui
    Stephen Hendry v Matthew Stevens
    Shaun Murphy v Steve Davis
    And Arm Wrestling.
    Well the Irish did it on St Patrick's day

    True. Was pretty sure Murphy would beat Stevens, though.

    Absolute sickener that for Stevens, losing 13-12 from 12-7 up. Means he's out of the top 16 as well. Ouch.

    Quality that the tit O' Sullivan's out.

    Can always rely on the classy Higgins to do him lately.

    And Mark Selby beat Ali Carter, too.

    Stayed up till 12-12, then the safing got the better of me and I fell asleep without getting to know the result. Not boding well for the rest of the weekend.
