by RKW - White Eagle (U8894432) 05 December 2010
This is the thread to discuss the day's play at the UK Championship in Telford.
R1 – Sun 5 Dec: Sunday gets going at lunchtime, with the four matches played on Saturday evening resuming until a finish. John Higgins made a fantastic start to his first televised event after his ban with a century break against a battling Stephen Lee, with that game tied at four frames each. World champion Neil Robertson holds a commanding lead over Rory McLeod, whilst Peter Ebdon leads Andrew Higginson 4-3, and Martin Gould is 4-3 up against Graeme Dott.
Later on Sunday, eight matches start and will be concluded at some stage in tomorrow's play. At 1400 GMT (earliest), Marco Fu faces Barry Hawkins, Ali Carter takes on Mark Joyce and two Mark's, Williams and Davis also feature. Undoubtedly, the biggest game of the day is favourites Stephen Hendry and Jimmy White, as they take to the baize in an eagerly anticipated encounter.
Rounding off day two at 1900 GMT, recently crowned Premier League champion Ronnie O'Sullivan meets Stuart Bingham, the Mark King v Ryan Day and Shaun Murphy v Patrick Wallace matches get going whilst a tasty-looking match up between Jamie Cope and Judd Trump is the highlight of the evening's action.
