Krzysztof Kciuk and Scott Mitchell are the first two players to claim wins to start the Tuesday afternoon session at Lakeside.
Kciuk was impressive in his win over Dave Parletti. Parletti was the number 11 seed and was making his Lakeside debut but succumbed to The Thumb 3-1.
Parletti himself had his moments including a 140 checkout to win his only set with Kciuk missing a 135 on the bull to force a decider in the same leg.
He responded well after losing the next set with him going 2-0 up including a 121 on the bull but the Pole pulled it back to win.
Mitchell was really impressive in his win over Oliver Ferenc with Scotty Dog winning in straight sets against the Serbian to move through.
This included a 94 average for the former champion who will look to regain the Lakeside crown this time around.
