    Masters underway. Awesome to see that **** O'Sullivan fall at the first hurdle. Even better for him to not go into sulk mode for once.

    With luck, he'll make the quarters.

    Watching a fair bit on Eurosport (it beats doing maths). Day was pretty poor today against Higgins, scraped three frames but tossed away too many silly shots. Maguire the best on offer so far imo.
    Messi scores on the rebound.

    Watched Ronnie-Liu yesterday afternoon. Neither really looked on top forms.
    Or something.

    Day's beaten an off-colour and annoyed Higgins, in a match without a single ton
    Carter swept the floor with Murphy (yay)
    Maguire is on top form and took the first eight frames against Robertson, including a 131 and a 110 (still the best on offer by far. Six 50+ scores in a row.)
    O'Sullivan leads Williams 5-3 despite a couple of nice 80s by the Welshman
    Hendry completed the rout of Ding

    Think that was it. Will go out on a limb and predict semis

    Hendry v O'Sullivan
    Ebdon v Maguire

    There's a reason they're favourites, no? In any case, Unibet offers equal odds on both of the quarters.

    Another 147 for O'Sullivan, taking Williams by 13-7, and 21-year-old Liang from Heilongjiang in Northeast China wins his sixth match in a row with 13-12 over the last representative of the Emerald Isle. Nearly chucked away 12-8, last frame total chaos.

    Go Liang.

    Hmm Swail not happy with the way the balls were replaced on that yellow. He definitely could see the yellow, he could just see a fraction more after they were replaced (typical of Alan Chamberlain not to bother using technology - I do hate technophobes). But in the first place it shouldn't have been a miss (Liang was 27 ahead with 27 remaining, so you'd only call a miss in exceptional circumstances) but Swail was quite happy to accept that one. Bit of a shame really.

    Great match that was. Bit gutted for Joe, was one of those matches you didn't want to see either losing, but hey that's sports.

    Another 147. By Ali Carter, of all people.
