Jack Lisowski is aiming to reach the World Championship quarter-finals for the first time in his sixth appearance at the Crucible.

Indeed, Jackpot does not boast the strongest record on snooker’s biggest stage, winning just two of out of seven matches since making his debut in 2013.

And the six-time ranking event finalist faces another tricky first-round tie against two-time runner-up Matthew Stevens on Tuesday.

Aside from runs to the Welsh Open semi-finals and UK Championship quarters, it has been a generally quiet season for the world number 14.

As a result, he feels more incentive than usual to produce the goods at the sport’s blue-riband event.
