Ryan Day fired the fourth 147 break of his career in a 6-1 win over former women’s world champion Mink Nutcharut in qualifying for the International Championship.
The British Open champion compiled the 191th maximum of the modern era to move 3-1 clear before concluding with a knock of 128 to reach the final stages in the Chinese city of Tianjin (5-12 November).
Seven-time world champion Stephen Hendry rolled in 88 to lead Tian Pengfei 2-0, but watched his opponent recover with 59, 74, 54, 74 and 66 enough to seal his progress.
Hendry was joined through the exit door by Jimmy White, who suffered a 6-1 loss to Matthew Selt.
Six-time world finalist White won the first frame, but shipped the next six with recent Crucible qualifier Selt advancing boosted by two half-century breaks.
English Open champion Barry Hawkins maintained his impressive form with a 6-0 whitewash of Andrew Pagett, who lost the fifth frame on the three-mile rule.
Hawkins made two 50-plus breaks before finishing with a fine 103 to reach the last 64.
