Leigh Griffin                    5-4 Neal Foulds
Stuart Pettman                   5-4 Tony Chappel (Wales)

16 out of 32 seeded players perished in their opening sortie of the New Year as new faces take their places in the line up at the venue in February.

Highlight of the day was a 140 total clearance from Preston's Ian McCulloch as he breezed past Sean Storey 5-0. McCulloch also added breaks of 97, 53, and 54 for good measure. He will now play Peter Ebdon in Scotland.

Willie Thorne turned back the clock, notched yet another century - 106 as he won 5-1 against Colm Gilcreest. Thorne has set up a match against Andy Hicks, another player who has struggled to find his form this season so far.

Swansea's Tony Chappel clawed his way back from the brink of defeat at 0-4, but having gallantly levelled at 4-4 he could not sustain his recovery as a grateful Stuart Pettman won the final frame 106-0 to go forward to meet Billy Snaddon on his home turf. Joe Swail's win sets up an all Irish battle as he plays Ken Doherty.

Quinten Hann's solid 5-3 win over Martin Dziewialtowski now matches him against Mark King in an intruiging encounter.

Jonathan Birch posted the highest break of the event so far - 125 on his way to a 5-2 win over Jason Weston - and the mouthwatering draw against last year's champion Ronnie O'Sullivan.

Matt Wilson joins the ton club, as his 103 helps him to a shock win over Pakistan's Lancastrian Shokat Ali.

Veteran Dennis Taylor, in his final professional season, bids farewell to the British Open as he bows out 5-3 to Worcester's Dave Finbow. Runs of 58 and 69 helped Finbow an a 4-0 lead, before the obdurate Taylor won 3 frames to cut the deficit, before Finbow edged the next for his win.

Fellow veteran, 1986 World Champion Joe Johnson fared better, prevailing 5-2 over Craig MacGillivray.

Many players dread drawing Marco Fu these days, but no problems for Leeds' Peter Lines as he ran in breaks of 87, 65, 77 and 69 for an emphatic 5-1 win.

Alfie Burden used his scoring power to good effect to dispose of his stablemate Mick Price, runs of 66, 55 and 65 giving him a 5-3 win.

Marcus Campbell, Scotland's man of the moment compiling a gritty 64 in a nerve tingling final frame shoot out against New Zealand's Dene O'Kane, who has yet to see the inside of a venue this season.

Round 4

(Sunday 10th January)

Marco Fu (Hong Kong)             5-3 Stuart Bingham
Phaitoon Phonbun (Thailand)      5-4 Joe Delaney (Ireland)
Matt Wilson                      5-0 Richard Somauroo (Mauritius)
Robin Hull (Finland)             5-0 Mario Geudens (Belgium)
Adrian Gunnell                   5-2 Shawn Budd (Australia)
Colm Gilcreest (Ireland)         5-0 Tom Finstad (Canada)

Hong Kong's Marco Fu opened the second half of the season in bright enough style today in Blackpool. Pitted against former English Amateur Champion, Stuart Bingham, both players produced a match of high quality and solid scoring, but having fallen 3-2 behind, it was Fu who stepped up another gear to run in frame and match winning breaks of 67, 63 and 95 to go forward.

Frame Scores:Fu first (breaks in brackets:) 63-22; 52-69 (51);
70 (70)-2; 3-76 (76); 0-80 (80); 84 (67)-35; 73 (63)-39; 124 (95)-0.
Thailand's Pahitoon Phonbun survived a thriller to progress at the hands of giant killer Joe Delaney, having clinched a 30 minute decider. Phonbun produced breaks of 85 and 93.

The other four overseas qualifiers only put two frames on the board between them, once again calling into question the current system for overseas qualifying - Aussie Shawn Budd managed the two frames against Adrian Gunnell, but Richard Somauroo, Mario Geudens and Tom Finstad all failed to trouble the scores.

Robin Hull of Finland clattered in breaks of 82, 66 and 52 in frames 1-3 of his demolition of Mario Geudens.

Leigh Griffin                    5-2 Tai Pichit (Thailand)            
Stuart Pettman                   5-4 Simon Parker                     

Disappointment today for the Newsgroup's own pro Simon Parker, as he loses out in a tantilising deciding frame to Stuart Pettman, his fellow Lancastrian. Pettmann opened the match with a run of 101, added 51 in the second and 57 in frame 7, but it was a match clinching 74 that saw him over the line in the decider.

Wales' Ian Sargeant threw away a 4-0 lead to give Karl Burrows a 5-4 win; while his countryman Mark Bennett also lost the clincher, as outsider Joe Delaney compiled a vital 52 in the decider.

Alfie Burden showed scant respect for his opponent's illustrious past, as he breezed past Tony Knowles 5-1. Knowles opened with a run of 60, but Burden responded with 5 frame on the spin and breaks of 105 and 66.

Canadian Bob Chaperon gave Scotland's latest hero Marcus Campbell plenty to think about. Chaperon nicked frame two with a break of 70, in response to a run of 69 from Campbell. "Frechnie" added a run of 81 in the 4th to keep the scores level and took a 3-2 lead, before Campbell dug deep to run out the match in some close fought and long frames.

Shock of the day was the early demise of Matthew Couch, who lost the final frame of his match with Finland's Robin Hull. A quality game saw breaks of 56, 59, and 54 from Couch, but Hull responded with 80, 62 and decisively 56 in the final frame.

Worcester's Dave Finbow administered heavy punishment to young Scottish hopeful Alan Burnett, runs of 52 and 67 getting him off to the ideal start, as he ran out an easy 5-0 winner.

Snooker's "rap" boy Lee Richardson went on a scoring spree in a 5-1 demolition of Nick Terry. Lee hammered home breaks of 83, 94, 122 and 64, and Terry compiled 121 in the only frame he won. Wayne Brown wasn't far behind in the scoring stakes as he put away scores of 66, 77, 98 and 80 in a 5-1 win over Neath's Steve Newbury.

The lowest 6 seeded winning players from this round go forward to play the 6 overseas qualifiers in round 4. The winners go through in the seeded players place in the draw.

The Old Brigade show the kids a thing or two today:

Tony Knowles and Steve Newbury struck a blow for the Over 40s as they both stormed to welcome victories in the second round of the Scottish Open at Blackpool. 43 year old Knowles knocked in two centuries - 113 and 123 on his way to a 5-2 win over Australia's young hopeful Johl Younger. This has set up a mouth-watering match against Alfie Burden on Wednesday. Steve Newbury, who endured a miserable early season in Plymouth bounced back with a 5-1 drubbing of Leigh Robinson. WPBSA Coach Newbury is part of a snooker dynasty back in Neath, which includes his father, 16 year old son Paul and sister Sian, who has been a Welsh International for more than ten years.

Elsewhere 14 of the seeds failed to negotiate their opening matches today as the giant killers rolled them over. Plymouth's 147 hero Adrian Gunnell edged out Paul Sweeny in a last frame thriller. Sweeny knocked in breaks of 68, 62 & 63 but Gunnell stepped in with 81 and the match winning 89 in the decider.

Ireland's Colm Gilcreest put paid to Welshman Mark Fenton, helped by runs of 53 and 68, which negated offerings of 67 and 81 from Fenton. Gilcreest held a 3-0 lead before Fenton levelled, but he couldn't sustain his recovery as Gilcreest took the next two frames for his 5-3 victory.

The tons started roling in today, led by Tony Knowles with 123 and 113, Malta's favourite Joe Grech added 121 in a 5-2 win over Mario Wehrmann, while 100 helped Nigel Gilbert to his 5-4 victory against Sean Lanigan. Nick Terry saved his 103 for the match winning break against Gary Lees and Chris Shade contributed 122 in a 5-2 win over David McDonnell.

Morning session

The first round hopefuls set out on the long road to the Granite City - Aberdeen - their starting point first round matches in Blackpool this morning.

Four players failed to even make it to the starting line - as Li Jian-Bing, Anan Terananon, Dylan Leary and Kirk Stevens all failed to show for their matches. The lucky beneficiaries were England's Les Dodd, Wales' Ian Sargeant, Canada's Bob Chaperon and England's Wayne Saidler.

Mixed fortunes for the Overseas players - Robin Hull of Finland posted the first whitewash of the morning, a break of 63 his only sizeable contribution in beating Matthew Bray 5-0.

Australia lost two players as Steve Mifsud lost 5-3 to Stuart Reardon of England and Neil Robertson didn't trouble the scorers as Scotland's Geoff Dunn won 5-0. Reardon notched up runs of 61 and 83 in his win, while Dunn recorded back to back breaks of 54 and 65.

Australia's youngest player, Johl Younger kept the flag flying with a 5-3 win over Surinder Gill. Gill's break of 61 in the second frame was the only notable break as he held a 2-0 lead before Younger found his form. Younger's win has earned him an intriguing encounter against the veteran Tony Knowles in Round Two.

Canada recorded one walkover, one loss and one no show, as Bob Chaperon's opponent Dylan Leary was scratched; Gary Natale lost out 5-3 to England's Paul Cavney and Kirk Stevens failed to report for his opening match.

Iceland beat Belgium comfortably as Kristjan Helgason picked up where he left off in Plymouth last summer, recording a 5-1 victory over Bjorn Haneveer. Haneveer notched 73 in the second, but runs of 71 in the third, and 59 and 54 in the fifth and sixth saw Helgason safely over the line.

Evening session

Six more "no-shows" tonight, but Global Snooker Centre's own pro Simon Parker, recovers from a 2-0 deficit to beat China's Guo Hua 5-2.

Malaysia's Sam Chong shows his class with a 5-1 hammering of John Giles.

Colm Gilcreest wins an all-Irish battle against Dermot McGlinchey. Runs of 71 and 67 in Frames 5 & 6 sealing his victory.

Snooker's youngest pro Shaun Murphy loses out in a decider to Eddie Barker.

Belgium's Patrick Delsemme notches a win for the Continent as he sneaks a decider against Mark Miller. Another continental win - for Mario Wehrmann against Mike Hallett, a run of 82 the highlight for Wehrmann, who now faces Malta's Joe Grech.

Thailand's former monk Tai Pichit breezes through 5-0, his victim Darren Limburg. Pichit will now play Plymouth's hero Patrick Wallace of Northern Ireland. Wallace's exploits last summer saw him through to two venues and he notched a memorable win against Nigel Bond in the UK Championship.
