Michael Unterbuchner and Anastasia Dobromyslova are through after seeing off Justin Thompson and Laura Turner as the evening session begins at Lakeside.
Unterbuchner came through in a thriller against Justin Thompson which went to a final set.
Despite that though, it was progression for ‘T-Rex’ who will face the impressive Wayne Warren in the next round.
He hit a 90 average compared to an 86 from ‘Thommo’ who was sat on a finish to send it to a tie-break before the German pinned a 66 checkout to move through.
Dobromyslova in her straight sets win over Turner hit one maximum and eight 140’s, this was with an 81 average as the former multiple World Champion begins her campaign.
