new format...128 players enter in round one. Big players kicking up a fuss about it, saying it's like a "circus" amongst other things. On the other hand, a number of amateurs and youngsters are given the opportunity of being destroyed by a top player on live TV, which must be nice for them.
Ronnie O'Sullivan's beaten someone called Rhys Clark 6-0.
Ding Junhui's up 4-2 against Middlesbrough warehouse manager Antony Parsons.
Neil Robertson will face an 18 year old who's only been playing for 5 years, Dylan Mitchell.
Mark Selby's up against 15 year old (!) Shane Castle, who's 120-something in the rankings. Not bad.
Also a fancy-haired Shaun Murphy's currently losing against the World number 77.
