A big surprise that Mark King, one of this season's comets, was almost beaten by de Cock

First round

Losers receiving 1140 pts except seeds 1 to 16 who get 380. The amateurs don't get zip! Players are English unless stated STEPHEN HENDRY (SCO) (1) bt Alain Robidoux (CAN) (32) 5-4 STEVE DAVIS (2) bt Mike Hallett (23) 5-0 JAMES WATTANA (THA) (3) bt Mark King (89) 5-4 Van Velthoven (BEL) (am) w/o JIMMY WHITE (4) scr JOHN PARROTT (5) bt Anthony Davies (WAL) (64) 5-4 ALAN MCMANUS (SCO) (6) bt Martin Clark (18) 5-2 KEN DOHERTY (IRE) (7) bt Doug Mountjoy (WAL) (26) 5-0 DARREN MORGAN (WAL) (8) bt Mark Bennett (WAL) (31) 5-1 RONNIE O'SULLIVAN (9) bt Neal Foulds (25) 5-2 Dave Harold (19) bt PETER EBDON (10) 5-3 NIGEL BOND (11) bt Steve James (17) 5-1 Dean Reynolds (29) bt JOE SWAIL (NIR) (12) 5-3 DAVID ROE (13) bt Mick Price (27) 5-1 TERRY GRIFFITHS (WAL) (14) bt Gary Wilkinson (22) 5-3 WILLIE THORNE (15) bt Billy Snaddon (SCO) (36) 5-4 TONY DRAGO (MLT) (16) bt John Higgins (SCO) (51) 5-4 Jimmy White has withdrawn from the tournament because of illness. Something about a bald patch on his head. He'll probably be gone for quite some time. Terry Griffiths came back from 3-0 down against Gary Wilkinson to win 5-3. He now faces Steve Davis - their 37th meeting! Steve Davis's whitewash over Mike Hallett included two century breaks and is his best performance so far this season.

Second round

Losers receiving 1330 pts. HENDRY (1) bt DRAGO (16) 5-3 GRIFFITHS (14) bt S DAVIS (2) 5-2 BOND (11) bt WATTANA (3) 5-3 PARROTT (5) bt D ROE (13) 5-3 O'SULLIVAN (9) bt MCMANUS (6) 5-3 DOHERTY (7) bt D Reynolds (29) 5-2 THORNE (15) bt D MORGAN (8) 5-3 Harold (19) bt Velthoven (am) 5-1 James Wattana made a 121 break, the highest break of the televised stages so far, but lost anyway to Nigel Bond.

Quarter-finals

Losers receiving 1520 pts HENDRY (1) bt THORNE (15) 5-2 Frame scores: 50-66, 65-9, 42-81, 88-0 (88), 66-28, 78-15 (71), 78-33 (74) Stephen Hendry was heading for a maximum break in frame four, but missed the 12th red. "I should have potted it, even though I needed a cue extension for a rest shot", he admitted. A score of 147 would have guarantees him a bonus of 20 000 Pounds. PARROTT (5) bt GRIFFITHS (14) 5-2 Frame scores: 75-4, 86-8, 88-34, 88-1 (80), 53-54, 20-72, 82-34 (54) BOND (11) bt DOHERTY (7) 5-3 Frame scores: 130-0 (64,62), 68-49 (55), 67-34, 1-74, 18-96 (88), 97-1 (76), 32-74 (61), 82-7 (50) Nigel Bond hadn't appeared in a ranking tournament semi-final for two and a half years. And he's only been in one final (in the 1990 Grand Prix). O'SULLIVAN (9) bt Harold (19) 5-1 Frame scores: 88-19 (82), 92-6 (80), 73-32, 24-65, 97-20 (91), 68-5 (53) Ronnie O'Sullivan needed just 63 minutes to beat Dave Harold. "I have surprised myself against a quality player. I thought he would beat me", enthused O'Sullivan. "The reason I didn't expect to win was that I didn't fancy the job. You have days when you feel like that", he added.
