Kyren Wilson will be looking to break his quarter-final deadlock in the Cazoo Players Championship this week.
The Kettering star eased through his first-round match in Milton Keynes on Monday with a 6-1 success over BetVictor Shoot Out winner Ryan Day.
It has been a mixed season so far for Wilson.
He won the BetVictor Championship League and otherwise has reached seven quarter-finals, but lost all seven.
He’ll try for an eighth time in the last eight of this week’s £385,000 event, which is being screened live on ITV4, when he takes on Neil Robertson/Lu Ning today (Thursday).
Wilson, who knocked in breaks of 62, 59, 119 and 73 in his win over Day, said: “I really enjoy these ITV events.
“It’s only the the top 16 players so every match could be a final.
“Ryan showed how well he can handle pressure at the Shoot Out so it was a tough draw and I’m delighted to beat him.
“I’ll just keep putting myself into quarter-finals and hopefully win one.”
Wilson went into the Players Championship on the back of a run to the last 16 of the Welsh Open in Newport last week where he was eventually beaten 4-3 by Tom Ford.
