Hossein Vafaei beat Fan Zhengyi 4-2 in the qualifying round of the Scottish Open on Sunday at the Metrodome in Barnsley.
The 26 year-old, a former world amateur champion, took advantage of his opponent’s late arrival – with Fan docked a frame for turning up late for the fixture.
Vafaei subsequently won the opening two frames to lead 3-0, and despite a late rally from the Chinese competitor, he held on with a break of 68 sealing his place in the last 64 of the Scottish Open.
Three of Fan’s countrymen fared a lot better, with Li Hang, Xu Si, and Wu Yize all managing to emerge unscathed from their preliminary-round encounters.
Wu secured a particularly impressive victory against world number 27 Kurt Maflin, while Xu got the better of compatriot Lu Ning in what was generally a scrappy affair.
Li, meanwhile, was in no mood to hang around as he thumped veteran Nigel Bond with a 4-0 scoreline that included breaks of 92 and 58.
Elsewhere, Sunny Akani got the other bagel of the day thanks to a 4-0 drubbing of Lukas Kleckers, while Robbie Williams overcame Soheil Vahedi 4-2.
Sanderson Lam defied his amateur status to prevail in a nail-biting decider with Jamie Clarke, and Ukrainian teenager Iulian Boiko won his first match this season with a 4-2 triumph against Louis Heathcote.
On Monday, the Scottish Open qualifying action continues with Stephen Hendry, Ryan Day, Graeme Dott, and Luca Brecel among those set to participate.
