Chinese teenager Ding Junhui moved a step closer to a World Championship appearance by reaching the penultimate qualifying round at Prestatyn.
Ding made an impressive UK debut at the Masters last month
The 16-year-old beat Marcus Campbell 10-3 and now faces Barry Pinches for a place in the final qualifier.
Victory there would make him the youngest player ever to reach the televised stages at the Crucible.
Ding, who starred as a wild card at the Masters at Wembley, knocked in two centuries on his way to victory.
