Good to see a thread on this and glad Ding made it through - he's a class player and shouldn't be languishing at 17 in the World, which is the reason he has had to go through qualifying

You might want to edit the bit in bold!

Former World Champions Peter Ebdon (leading Ian Burns 7-2) and Graeme Dott (leading Mike Dunn 5-4) will be hoping to complete wins later today.

A few years back a lot was being made of Jack Lisowski as a star of the future. Well he is toiling in his final qualifying match against David Gilbert - he trails 8-5.

He hasn't kicked on to be a consistent top player, nor have any of the young players who were touted for big things a few years ago (Michael White, Luca Brecel etc). Judd Trump has done fairly well but on the biggest stage still only has that one final 5 years ago now

And Lisowski has only reached The Crucible once in five previous attempts. Lisowski pulls a frame back to trail 8-6.

Anthony McGill leads 8-6 against the nearly man of maximums Thepchaiya Un-Nooh who has missed the final black twice in maximum attempts in the last few days. McGill impressed at The Crucible last year.

Ouch. Lisowski lets Gilbert back in to pinch the frame. Gilbert leads 9-7 as does McGill.

Good - even back when he was a top 16 player "Swampy" would duly roll over and lose to anyone better than him on paper. He's had his day and he wasn't particularly good

Apologies for building your hopes up. The match isn't quite done yet. Hamilton came from a mile back (and on verge of snookers required) to pinch the frame on the black and trails 9-8. Mitchell Mann is on a break in the deciding frame against Dechawat Poomjaeng and if he wins he will make his debut at The Crucible.

Well I'm not too bothered either way I suppose, especially as I dread the BBC coverage should Robbie Williams make it through! I would though put my house on Hamilton losing in the first round by 10-3 after making a couple of nice breaks

So I make it the draw is the top 16:

Selby, Bingham, Murphy, Robertson, Trump, O'Sullivan, Allen, Higgins, Walden, Perry, Hawkins, Gould, Williams, Fu, White (Michael not Jimmy), Maguire

vs any of the following:

Ding, Ebdon, R Williams, Dott, Milkins, Holt, McManus, Day, Wilson, McGill, Baird, Gilbert, Mann, Zhang Anda, Carter, Wenbo

Ones to avoid there are Ding and Carter. And probably Ebdon as he's just horrible to play against (and watch)

A decent enough draw. Gouldie / John Wayne looks intriguing. Likewise Williams / Dott & Murphy / McGill.
Perry / Wilson & Maguire / McManus are the clear stinkers.
Incidentally, Rob Walker ( complete with cheesy grin ) is as annoying as ever and I had to double-check but, yes, Virgo has hit 70.
