Mark Selby has ended Welsh outsider Duane Jones' Welsh Open hopes as the world number one cruised to a 4-0 win.
Jones, the lowest ranked Welshman in the tournament, was outclassed as Selby dropped just 76 points - 41 points of them in a "big" second frame.
Jones was "kicking himself" as the the world number 118 missed a blue in the second and Selby took control as Jones' Welsh debut lasted under 90 minutes.
Later in the day Wales' Matthew Stevens beat Ireland's David Morris 4-2.
Stevens will face Martin O'Donnell in round two after the Englishman beat Scotland's Stephen Maguire 4-3.
Fellow Welshman Lee Walker lost 4-2 to world number eight Barry Hawkins.
Dominic Dale lost 4-3 against England's Alfie Burden in a match that finished at 00:30 GMT.
