The 2018 Paul Hunter Classic continues on Saturday with matches from the bottom half of the draw played down to the Last 16 in Furth.

The opening day of the season’s third ranking event saw Michael Georgiou produce perfection with a maximum break in his First Round tie, scooping a provisional ¬£20,000 bonus.

A clutch of big names begin their campaigns on Day Two, including the highest-ranked player in the competition – Shaun Murphy.

Murphy, back-to-back champion in 2008 and 2009, had to settle for the runner-up spot 12 months ago and will be keen for another crack at glory this weekend.

The former World Champion opens up against former Masters finalist Fergal O’Brien, with the 46-year-old Irishman enjoying a renaissance in his career.

Former Shanghai Masters champion Kyren Wilson takes to the baize in the first session of the day as he faces Chen Feilong – a player embarking on his first full season as a Tour Card holder.

A Tyneside derby sees former China Open finalist Gary Wilson take on Gary Wilson v John J Astley, while Germany’s top-ranked prospect Lukas Kleckers faces three-time women’s World Champion Ng On Yee.

In-form Riga Masters finalist Jack Lisowski looks to kick-start a strong run this weekend by overcoming Welsh amateur Dylan Emery.

World Open semi-finalist Noppon Saengkham aims to continue his fine start to the season when he meets Wirrall cueist Robbie Williams, while Norway’s Kurt Maflin plays former UK Championship semi-finalist – David Grace.

The Second Round immediately follows the conclusion of the First Round, while the Last 32 ties are contested in the evening session.

The action gets underway from 8.30am BST, with all matches to be contested over the best of seven frames.
