China Open: John Higgins and Stuart Bingham progress
Former world champion John Higgins progressed at the China Open, with world number two Stuart Bingham also making it into the third round.
Higgins made a high break of 88 to beat Mark Joyce 5-1 and Bingham went through with a 5-3 win over Ian Burns.
Shaun Murphy overcame David Grace to go into the second round before a 5-3 loss to Mark King in Beijing on Wednesday.
Jimmy Robertson lost 5-1 to 2011 winner Judd Trump, while Martin O'Donnell beat Matt Selt by the same scoreline.
"There are only a few top-16 players left but that shows how much class there is lower down the rankings," said Bingham.
There were also second-round wins for Stephen Maguire and Ricky Walden.
Maguire will face Dominic Dale in the next round after the Welshman knocked in two centuries to beat Leeds teenager Darryl Hill 5-3.
Graeme Dott won 5-2 against 15-year-old amateur Yuan Sijun, the schoolboy who whitewashed Martin Gould on Tuesday.
