Ronnie O'Sullivan had a pretty good opening in PTC2. Ronnie won 4-1 over Nick Jennings. Stephen Hendry was a 4-0 winner against Ashley Wright in the first round but he lost to Ronnie in round 2 by 1-4.

Ronnie kept a serious and focused attitude through out the matches. He met Matthew Stevens in Round 3 and this was a tough match. Stevens forced a decider before Ronnie made classy 100 to end the match, 4-3. He now faces Liam Highfield in Last 16.
