Kyren Wilson made a 147 break in the opening frame as he beat Wales' Jackson Page 4-3 in the Welsh Open first-round.

The 28-year-old's second career maximum break put him ahead against 18-year-old Page but needed a deciding frame to clinch the win.

Four-time Welsh Open winner Ronnie O'Sullivan is also through after beating Zhang Jiankang 4-1.

Reigning champion Neil Robertson beat Jamie Clarke 4-2 as he secured his place in the second round.

Wales' Dominic Dale became the fourth home player to reach the second round earlier on Tuesday as he comfortably beat David Lilley 4-0.

There were also wins for Northern Ireland's Mark Allen, China's Yan Bingtao and Scotland's Scott Donaldson.

However the same could not be said for Wales' Jak Jones against Robert Milkins and Darren Morgan versus Shaun Murphy as both fell to 4-0 defeats.
