In-form Neil Robertson built a 5-3 lead against fellow former champion Shaun Murphy in the opening last-16 tie at this year’s World Championship.
World number four Robertson took the opener with a 106 break and led 3-0.
Murphy, the 2005 Crucible winner, scored a 109 en route to winning two of the next three to trail 4-2.
Robertson’s second ton made it 5-2 before Murphy scored another century, but missed out on a maximum 147 having potted 14 reds and 14 blacks.

The world number 13 left himself a tough red to the middle pocket and it rattled in the jaws as he tried to engineer position on the black.
Murphy has had a poor season by his standards, but was in brilliant form in the first round.
The 36-year-old inflicted the biggest defeat in Crucible history, restricting Chinese qualifier Luo Honghao to a new low points tally of 89 in his record-equalling 10-0 win.
Robertson, the 2010 champion, showed similarly destructive qualities in the last 32 when he thrashed Michael Georgiou 10-1.
He remains one of the favourites to take this year’s title, having won three ranking events this season.
Three-time champion Mark Selby begins his second-round tie against qualifier Gary Wilson on Thursday evening.
