Kyren Wilson fought back from 2-0 down to beat Jack Lisowski 6-2 in the opening round of the Masters.
Lisowski, 28, delivered some superb attacking snooker to win the first two frames with breaks of 56 and 72.
But Wilson, also 28, replied with a break of 66 in the third before easing to a quarter-final spot - his highest break was a 70 in the final frame.
"He was flawless for two frames," said Wilson. "The first game's always the hardest so I'm delighted to win it."
Judd Trump hammered seven-time champion Ronnie O'Sullivan 10-4 with a brilliant performance to win his first Masters title.
A closely fought classic was expected between two of snooker's biggest draws, but the match turned into a comprehensive rout for Trump.
The world number five's blistering start saw him open up 4-0 and 7-1 advantages in a stunning first session.
Despite O'Sullivan responding in the evening with two centuries as he clawed three frames back, Trump was not to be denied.
Neither player will repeat their success this year, with Trump knocked out by Shaun Murphy in the opening round and O'Sullivan choosing not to play.
The second of the so-called Triple Crown snooker events, the Masters is considered snooker’s most prestigious invitation tournament.
The 2020 tournament runs from January 12 to 19 with full coverage across the BBC Two, Red Button, Connected TV and iPlayer, plus coverage across the BBC Sport website and app.
The Masters has been held at Alexandra Palace in London since 2012 and its most decorated player is Ronnie O'Sullivan. The seven-time champion will not be in action though at the 2020 tournament after announcing he would not take part in December.
Defending champion Judd Trump beat O’Sullivan in last year’s final 10-4 and will hope to retain his title after the World number one exited the UK Championship at the last 32 stage in December.
The BBC will bring you live coverage from Alexandra Palace on BBC One, BBC Two and BBC Red Button, plus uninterrupted coverage on the BBC Sport website, app and on BBC iPlayer.
There will also be a daily highlights round-up and further extended coverage of the day's play with Masters Snooker Extra each evening.
